Because you're only young once.

I'm thinking that they're still not big enough, I could go bigger. Whether or not these make the cut when they're finished remains to be seen.

Summer fun.

Cheers!

You blow my mind. How much do those pots weigh?!

brandon phillips said...

right now they're at 45 pounds. 3 of them started with a 20# base and so far 2 12.5" coils. The fourth had a 30# base and a 15# coil.

Man... I want to play in your studio when I grow-up.
Do you cut a foot on those buggers?

brandon phillips said...

nope, no foot. I may trim the bases while they're still attached if they need it but ideally they're made without having to be trimmed.

This is some fresh blogging, glad I surfed over to see the work in action. Those look gargantuan. Just wondering if you ever get an occasional slug trying to slide over the pots, causing slug slime trails and wreaking havoc on the whole operation? It looks rather inviting to a mollusk, indeed.
Love,
Mrs. Slug
PS - I'd like to take one of those for a spin!

Show off. I gave up throwing "big" after my third bout of tendonitis in my shoulder. Big for me meant around 20# tops. Keep on going!
