Illustrated is an angled side shot of the dotaku bell form that I posted up last week in greenware form. I rubbed the edges just a bit to try to accentuate the sharp lines around the pot and used the alternating rain pattern in copper to try to animate it a bit and promote the vertical nature of the piece. The lugs that are attached are pierced through and I first worked on this type of attachment on pilgrim flasks for the use of a suspension cord. I like working on pieces/parts pots, there are lots of possibilities and problem solving that go into the building and stuff that goes right (and wrong) with unexpected discoveries along the way which are all just part of the process.
