I tried to learn to throw an egg cup with a stem, like a little goblet. It’s tricky. I tried not to swear too much as virtually all of them collapsed or went wonky. I have saved the best one to fire as my pot of the day, but you’d need a goose egg to fit it. I will try again, and again, until I have learned the skill, but not today.  Pottery, like life, does not always go according to my plan.

Most of my egg cup attempts ended up like this. (However, notice the clean wheel in the background. I spent ages scraping black clay from it. )


It’s a too large, thick and wonky egg cup. It was my 5th attempt. I will try again, and again, another day.
