Even More Bottles Spring 08

These bottles were experiments with the form. They are primarily non-functional because of the narrowness of the neck. Also, they are heavier than I expect my later ones will be. Wheel-throwing the forms from a single piece of clay may necessitate the thicker than usual (for me) bodies. As I close the form to pull the neck a thinner body would be more likely to torque and twist. One solution I expect would work is to let the body dry, covering the upper portion to keep it pliable, before pulling the neck.
