Everyone has an origin story, I have an origin vessel that marks the beginning of my work with clay. This piece inspired a project: 30 Cylinders in 30 Days. Each vessel was formed using the same slab construction method and observes the same height (13") and interior width (3.5") restrictions. Each piece has a different glaze or a unique attachment that changes its overall function. A foot makes a cylinder into a vase. A lid makes a vase into a jar. A spout makes a jar into a pitcher. A handle makes a pitcher into a teapot, and so forth...
