John Forster slipping and decorating a small vase at Winchcombe Pottery

This video shows John decorating a little vase. I like how the design is framed with horizontal and vertical lines through the slip.

John's swishes, like fountains, are inspired by some of Michael Cardew's decoration. The left bowl is an example of what I mean:

These sold at Bonhams in 2007 for 1,320. Fwaa. They are quite large pieces though-the left one is 26cm diameter. I like how it domes in at the rim. It would make an excellent tea bowl for a giant.

The kerfuffle at the end of this video is me being told off for perching on the little kiln near John's wheel.
