Throwing a fluted bowl.

Birds need some food in this frigid weather. Thanks to grain hoppers, they scored big today.

The bisques are unloaded, and the next batch is loaded today.

Let's try something new. Video of me throwing fluted bowl. I use about 1 lb of clay. I do not weight the clay, instead measure the length of pugged clay, 2.5 inch long. Width of thrown bowl is 21.5cm (8.5”). I grew up with the metric system, and am still not able to use the inch very well, especially smaller than inch (1/8, ¼). Just confusing.
