Recent Spiral Bowls

I have recently completed a few "spiral" bowls. I normally do these in batches, both to be efficient in kiln use and becasue there are normally a few failures, or ones that do not turn out as I wished.

As these have been slumped into spherical moulds, they are shown here in the midst of putting "feet" on each of them. This consists of placing them on a grinding wheel and holding them horizontal until a flat spot has been ground. Subsequently this flat spot needs to be ground with finer an finer grits until the desired finish is achieved.

Photos of the finished pieces will be posted later.
