I didn't realise that I had not posted a picture of the final vessel. I ended up calling it Learning Curve, because it was so not perfect! And there is much improvement to make.
Seeing it is a members' exhibition and it is not juried, I thought I would put it in anyway. It looks ok from a distance.
I am telling people I have put it in to encourage all members to exhibit, not to be put off by the high standard of all the other pieces!
Here it is, with some other pieces that gave us a lovely little coloured corner.
