Menorah In Progress


I liked the menorah I made during the summer semester, and I want to make a few more from the same design. I used a very special tool to make the clay form a semi-circle. It's called a plastic bucket and was probably left over from something we ate. 
After the clay has started to dry but before I did any cleaning on it. 

Close up of the texture. I want to use a glaze that breaks over texture on this piece. 

I had to make the top wide enough to accommodate the candle cups and put a kind of frame around the piece to give it more support. 

^6 cashmere, a porcelain blend that fires very white and will make whatever glaze I use pop.
