I made another coil-built vessel out of porcelain clay (you can view a similar pot I made earlier this year here.) After the latest piece was bone-dry, which means all moisture has evaporated from the clay and it's ready to be bisque fired, I picked it up to dust off any teeny bits of clay [...]
I wrote about the work-in-progress (wip) unicorn cups in this post.
