Towerball... :) Can't Post

This is something random I scratched out for a charity event but it was deemed too cool to give away. Stoneware ceramic, made on the pottery wheel, glazed while still wet, then sgrafitto'ed to make the design.



Hee hee! It's cute and weird, but I kinda like it.

That's great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow, pretty impressive for something just thrown together (pun intended Laugh). I don't blame you for wanting to keep it. I assume "sgrafitto'ed" = "scratched?"

Thanks for sharing that with us and welcome to the boards!! Smile

Thanks! I didn't really have time to plan or draw it carefully, but it was fun to just do it. Those are all one thing, BTW, just a view of each side plus the top.

Now I don't know what to do with the durn thing, though.
