My Intermediate Wheel class asked for a challenging project. So we made Oval Baking Dishes with Lids. This was a three week project. Week 1: we threw the pot's wall with a lid gallery, then shaped it into an oval. Week 2: we attached the wall to a slab floor, then draped another slab over the pot's rim, to form a nice curve for our lids. Week 3: we carefully trimmed the lids to fit into the galleries, then added handles. This photo depicts an awful lot of hard work, precision, and patience. Pottery credits from back to front: Carolyn Neuendorffer, Quianna Douglas, Andrea Waters, Melanie Choe, Pam Emery, Andrea Schewe, Jeri Holloway, Lorraine DeSalvo, yours truly, and Judy Goldberg-Strassler. Special thanks to Karen Arrington, one of my advanced students who was working in the studio on "lid night." She is a veteran of oval lids, and she helped us out a lot.
