Making these little teeth in pottery class is incredibly fulfilling.
Sculpt 3 teeth a week > leave them to be fired.
Week 2 you have 3 teeth to glaze > leave them for their second firing. Sculpt 3 more teeth.
Week 3 you have 3 complete teeth. Glaze 3 more. Sculpt 3 more.
You get the jist.
Mouth pot! This gruesome mouth was part of a ‘Cornucopia’ project, where we had a brief to make a vestibule for our favourite food, to celebrate at the end of term party (and Potstop’s 20th birthday!) The finished piece also had to have a haiku inscribed into it, about that favourite food of yours.
So mine was a big mouth, it held fizzy sweets and sherbets. And now I’m left with a big mouth bowl.
