Our first assignment was to make 24 different finished bowls.  Within this assignment I researched a variety of different forms and styles.  For some of my tighter forms I observed Ryan J. Greenheck’s work.  After making those I started throwing some looser forms with no bottoms so I could then go in later and rework the clay by pushing, pulling, and indenting the surface.  For these bowls I was looking at Chris Gustin’s vessels and some architectural structures such as The Bird’s Nest National Stadium in Bejing, China.
