I’ve been trying to get a nice clean rim impression from my “circle dot” pattern wheel for ages. We don’t have failures, we just have lots of practice and educational opportunities. Clay too wet/sticky, too much pressure, not enough pressure, uneven distance from the rim, and worst of all the tail not meeting up with the head.

I finally nailed it with this piece. To celebrate, I added dimples in the raised circles for a metal rivet effect. The glazes even cooperated on this one. Hazzah!

Gun metal green rim over saturated iron. Rivet pattern rim. Saturated iron exterior.
