Creating in Clay: Week 2

Tea cups, templates and slab forming on the agenda this week. 

We started with a template for a slab formed bowl
and cut it out from our pre-rolled slabs
I decided to add a little something to the centre! It was taken from my drawings,
but he actually reminds me of the seagull in this:

all the components ready to form together
all secure and I've added an extra bit of detail around the rim
some extra clay to smooth out those edges
tidy up the underneath and leave it to dry
Here's my tea cup - the handle got knocked whilst it was drying :( 
There are a trio of 'eggspresso' cups too but I don't have a proper picture - I'll update when I get back!
