I have long wanted to try weaving clay and now I have an excuse - this blog is proving worthwhile!

Simple red earthenware hand rolled coils woven over a plaster mould. I made this very quickly and squashed the coils together so its not very neat or even but the shed was too cold to hang around. Started to clean it up with a sponge, hopefully will be able to neaten more as it dries.

Currently looks more like a lattice pie than a woven bowl...

Maybe brush with slip to make more even and help the coils stick together? Planning to clear glaze and then gold lustre the cut ends. Could take a while to dry in this climate but that might help prevent it from cracking...
