Making a Nautilus Sink for @annupton.art (hopefully). This is essentially an extra thick bowl with a stepped hole through the base. If I’ve got my measurements correct then the plug fitting should slot neatly into the recess in the bottom.

I’m 99% certain it’ll work, but there’s always the possibility that I’ve forgotten to account for something important. In which case, I’ll know what not to do next time!

There’s a guide to the slip and the Nautilus pattern on my blog, and the syringe is just a cheap one from Amazon.

Blindfolded throwing! It’s been a little while since I did this, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s also great practise for focusing on the fingertip sensation of throwing.

I’d love to see other people’s blindfolded throwing attempts, does anyone have a good idea for a hashtag to put them under?

Throwing a swirly oil pourer.
This was the only successful attempt of 3, it’s a lot harder than I expected to close the top without collapsing the bottom.
