I was inspired by the faceting video of the jewelry box. I faceted a bowl that way today for the first time. It looks great and was fun to make!
I think the bowl in this video could be improved by beginning the facets about 1/2 inch below a well defined lip.
I have just started working in clay again after 14 years! Your videos have been a real inspiration!
Thank you!
