Good evening YouTubers. This is Off Centered Potter coming at you. I wanted to give you an update on those double-wall carved vessel that I have been working on. If you take a look at that it looks pretty good until. Bop, bop, bop, bodapop. You see the back the back which is broken and if you go back and watch Josh’s video, he warns you that these are easily broken and his comments in my video—he made those comments rapid. Made a comment, you know, be sure to keep the piece moist so you could work with it. And me--thinking that I had made it all the way through was almost home free. I guess, got a little cocky and I had the whole piece carved and I set it out to let it dry and I was going back in and I was sanding this—that these would not so clunky and they would a little bit smoother and prettier and leaned it up against me and broke some of it there. I thought I can live with that, you know, I think it was this piece right here. And it is like “Oh! I can live with that” and I kept working with it and the more I worked with it—it was like crumbling in my hands. I mean, look at how terribly fragile this is—I mean—well everybody knows that. You know, that bone dried clay is terribly fragile.
So, I learned a lesson. I still really like the project and the idea. So, I am going to do another one of this, but I am certainly not going to—I could have maybe salvaged this one. I could have just had the face of it showing, but I really wanted it to be all the way around. So, this is going to go back and the reclaim bin and we are going to try again, but if you are trying this project, I warn you that you will get to this stage the sucker with fall apart. You just got to be super duper careful. So, I will make a video of the next project and until next time YouTubers. Adios.
