"Praise Him Pottery" Extruded Vases Coming Together

A new batch of "Praise Him Pottery".   I was inspired to make whimsical vases this time. 

These vases were made using 50/50 porcelain and stoneware mix.   I used my Peter Pugger extruder feature for the tubes.  I'm still working with Peter Pugger to get that feature to work well.  It took a lot of tugging, starting and stopping, loading and reloading to get enough tube extruded to make 4 vases. 

A little Love for the inside bottom of the vases.




These vases will be listed for sale in my Etsy store September, 2011.   100% proceeds being donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

  3. Hey Cindy what's the largest diameter cylinder you could extrude? I was wondering if you could extrude a really tall cylinder attach a bottom then put it on the wheel to shape.
