August 13, Day Zero

My first attempt at making a piece of pottery was a dismal failure.  I wanted to make a free form basket.  I rolled out the clay and tried to add texture with a doily.  The problem was the edge of the doily had 2 layers and when rolled into the clay, the edges became too thin.  As it dried it began to crack badly so I decided to wad up the clay and begin again the next day.
