Custom Urn

This urn was for a family member who loved elephants. First, I threw the urn form on the potter’s wheel and trimmed the bottom the next day. Then I ‘drew’ the elephant on a thin slab of clay, added the design detail, cut it out and added it to the still damp urn form by a joining technique called ‘scoring and slipping’. From that point forward, the elephant addition and the urn are one piece.
