Here is the base piece. The bottom up to the wide point was thrown in one piece and above that is a coil that I attached and threw yesterday.
The "coil," thrown on the wheel, it is thrown upside down and flipped onto the piece. This is about 5# which was too much but that's ok. Notice the flange on the rim, that will sit over the rim on the base to help make a better joint. Leave it attached to the bat.
The coil set on the piece and then cut off with a needle tool.
With the bat removed.
Smooth in the joint and start pulling.
If I wanted to make a vase it would start looking like this, I wanted a covered jar and had too much clay so I cut some of this off.
