I was sitting at the wheel, and had apples on the brain.
Its hollow and the exact size of an apple :P
I think it will be perfect for my Grandma's kitchen!

3 Point Swirl Bowl Set

I threw these bowls on my kick wheel. The rims were altered creating my 3 point swirl shape :) The bowls were trimmed, a foot ring added to each. They were then dried and bisque fired.
After the first firing, I glazed the outside of each bowl with my scale design in turquoise or lime green,alternating the inside color of the bowls. They were then refired.

Yes, I know! I have had months and months to finish and pay taxes, but who wants to do that when there are pots to make and spring air to enjoy???
Anyways, they are finished! Thanks to my lil sister (accountant), Thanks so much Mary!!!
I just licked the envelopes and will go to the post office in the morning.
It may be I'm a little bitter about it all, but am I the only person who imagines the "tax man" to be a gw bush look-a-like, with a giant big head and little small body? Kinda like a bobble head, but so much more wicked, stingy?
