Making a bonsai pot – Clay Craft Malaysia


For this project, I’ve prepared a round
and a rectangle piece of clay. Position you round piece of clay on
your fingers like this and pierce through in the center with
the hole making tool. Put it on the table and score around the outer rim of the round piece. Put some slip on and now gently attach the rectangle
piece onto this round piece. Apply a downward
pressure as you attach the piece. cut off the
excess clay with a knife, apply some slip and press the edges
together. Once done, use a wooden tool and blend the joints
together. Now roll out a coil evenly, cut it into three, pick one up, put it in your hand and roll
into a ball. To taper it, use the side of your finger and roll it in your palm. Score and slip, and then put on the little cones that you have just made. Press and twist them a little bit so to assure that you have stick them on
perfectly.
