Welcome back to my Hedge apple thoughts. Here is an image from the under side of the tree. It is of a young hedge apple fruit--still growing and still too small to get a good sized mold from. Yet I just had to take the trip and reconnect with these children--the trees and their fruit. It seems to me that they are dark and green like certain teas & certainly are good inspiration for making vessels that hold tea.
I have had difficulties though & I have been taking my time thinking about what the problem is. Perhaps it is my insistence on combining the form and texture of the hedge apple to wheel thrown elements.
I think you will agree that the foot on this is much too
severe for the bowl. For Pouring
I have also done pouring vessels which I thought were more successful but again I am not quite satisfied with the result. This is why it has been a couple years since I have done much of any thing with the hedge apple form. I figured it was one of those artistic detours and little else. I am not so sure of that now and have decided that I shall have to re visit the hedge apple this fall. I'll let you know how it goes.
