Chinese Pottery

A few weeks ago we made these Ancient Chinese Bowls. The clay finally dried enough for us paint them this week.

We got a good bowl shape by covering a dish with cling-film and then rolling out a slab of clay and moulding it around  the dish. We cut off excess with a clay tool. Once the bowls were semi-dry we popped them off the dish.
