See that pie plate over there on the wheel? Yeah, I know. It doesn't look much like a pie plate.
I was throwing jars early this morning with the clay I'd brought back
to life with water and my pug mill. It was really lifeless and sloppy
while working on the jars. So I figured I'd make pie plates -- where
soft and sloppy would actually be to my advantage.
though. This third or fourth time through the pug mill and the magic
happened. As I was centering the first pie plate it dawned on me that
the clay had come to life. So I made a taller pie plate with a spout
and, you know, a place for a handle in back. So you can pour your pie.
