Ring Vases/Pour Vessels date back to ancient times and across many different cultures. Many people today call this shape a “Donut Vase” because of it resemblance to the sweet American pastry but I am going to stick with Ring Vase since I am pretty sure they didn’t have donuts in Ancient Greece. This shape has a timeless elegance and can be made as a more traditional form or as something more modern. You can even add more necks to it make it a multi -neck vessel or add a spout and handle to make it a pitcher or pouring vessel.
In this composite form class, you will learn how to make a double walled closed form on the pottery wheel.
4lbs of Clay, 2 lbs for the vase body and 2 lbs for the neck and base. I am using Laguna Bmix 5 clay but any clay will work.
Ribs of choice. I am using a basic wooden rib and a Sherril Mud Tools Red Rib #3
Wooden Clay Knife
Bucket for Water
Slip or Magic Water for joining
Throwing Bats (Hydrabat, StudioPro Bat)
