Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
I would like to share a trick that I figured out for trimming pieces with uneven lips. If you've seen my curly bowls. You can imagine that it might be hard to trim. But I figured out that I could throw a thick cylinder to fit on the inside. I usually slant the lip so that there is more surface area touching the leather hard pot. Then I use that rubbery stuff that you put under a rug to keep your rug from slipping. You can find it in a hardware store. I place that between the cylinder (freshly thrown) and the leather hard pot. Then I trim. When I am finished, I remove the non-slip grip. and finish throwing the cylinder to what ever I want that works with that size.
