After making the Tsubo style pot in my last batch of pots has put me on a little bit of a different path and I decided to have a go at some larger tsubo pot / jar like vessels. Being that my throwing ability is restricted I will have to make them in more than one part and then join them together. I think with more practise I will be able to throw fewer and larger so as to have fewer pieces to join together. The clay I use is very heavily grogged as it can be used for all manner of firings, including Raku. The clay throws well but is not very elastic and a little on the short side but that aside I love working with it as it lends itself to so many different aspects of pottery.
I took a few shots of the pots during the making process:
