Ceramic pitcher and 'lil platters LOVEBIRD theme
To make the pitcher I wrapped the clay slab around a cardboard cylinder AFTER making the impressions. They I closed the seam and added a few more texture impressions to camouflage the seam. I placed the cylinder atop a circle of clay that was about 1/2 larger than the diameter of the cylinder. I folded the half-inch excess up along the bottom of the cylinder and used a carved dowel to make the impression on an angle. This secured the bottom nicely without having to be too particular about a perfect fit. I added the handle and removed the cardboard cylinder.
