Wondering what this project is all about? Check out my first post for Day 1 to get the back story.
|30 Days Dish Set.|
Today I had a studio visit with one of my committee members and I really began thinking about these vessels and how they have functioned during the start of this project. What I have enjoyed about using them and what has caused me frustration. Starting with the cup, I made it extra big with the intent to drink everything for one month out of this single cup, I wanted it to be big enough to hold the maximum amount of liquid it might need it to hold. The finished cup is a little to wide for my hand, when I grab it from the tabletop my hand does not feel comfortable. The happy spot is a little below where it needs to be. Do you have a favorite cup? What makes it your favorite? Do you use it or simply look at it? The bowl has functioned quite well but the handle has to much volume and I think it would create a better grip for my hand if it was smaller. I have most enjoyed using the plate but it has a few marks on the top from the kiln firing. The handle has the proper fit for my hand and it has a comfortable weight with and without food.
Moving forward, I am going to continue making and thinking about what objects I need. From a berry bowl to the bubble tea straw. At the end of the 30 days my goal is to have a collection of objects that all relate to my daily use and their specific function within my life.
