B-mix jug

This is the first of the b-mix jugs I've carved. I forgot how soft it is to work with!! Very nice and easy to carve, almost too easy as sometimes the tool slips farther than I want it to go :P  Here you can see it in progress, first I lightly draw the outlines (which you can't really see), then one by one I carve the outside lines with my triangular tool, and then carve out the middle with the flat one.

Here is the finished piece! I think this design with the vertical lines is my favorite so far, though I will still work on other designs.  Sam is apparently very interested in my pottery.

Sam is investigating my home studio, aka the dining room table.
