Week 2

So this blog post is very late but I still wanted to at least do it. This week I had decided that I wanted to try to create the 5 circle piece instead of the other cubed pieces.

It’s been somewhat challenging in different ways. I’m trying to keep these donuts in similar proportions like width or height but it gets more difficult the more I increase the size just because I always end up not getting enough clay. The first ones I did, I would push down to much. There’s also the difficult step of joining the two walls together, sometimes I can still see the line.
