Finished a thing!

These pics are shit, but...

Side one
Side two
... I couldn't wait to share this. Just finished it last night. It should be glazed and photographed for reals on Sunday. I'll tell you more about it then.

The more of these doll jars I make, the more I want to make. The ideas just keep continually feeding each other. I already have the next couple all planned out. It's exciting having a direction to explore that keeps pulling me back again and again. I'm usually not great about following thru on an idea for a series either, so this feels really good to me. I've had the idea for these jars germinating in my head for a few years now, but I wasn't ready to make them until now, and I wasn't a strong enough thrower to make the forms I wanted. I'm still struggling with the forms a little, but now it feels like experimentation and not as hard a struggle, and I love it.
