My first ceramics piece of the new year!!!

It’s a pretty hideous vase, but it’s the first piece I created in my pottery class this year. (I’m getting better each week.)

This piece was built around six gift wrapping tubes, which were coated with petroleum jelly so that the cardboard tubes wouldn’t stick to the porcelain. They were kept inside of the clay when it was firing so that the clay would keep its shape. (The tubes burned up, obviously, in the kiln.)
