Squeaking in some wet work

We are squeaking in a couple of days of throwing before we go into lock down and glaze, glaze, glaze for our upcoming exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, in Raleigh.  Bruce felt he had time to work on a few of his powder box or clam jar forms. When we were discussing what form to throw yesterday, we thought about this one.  Bruce loves this form because it gives him a surface to decorate.  I like throwing a version of it too.  We realized it has been over 4 years since he has thrown this form.
He has also thrown oversized cups.  
I am working on some up and down bowls.  I refer to them as such because of the straight wall. I enjoy this form because it gives me a surface to decorate that can be seen easily compared to lower bowl shape.  I am planning to put sprigs on the sides and glaze them with our flowing glazes.
I also have some oversized cups that I will sprig and mushroom jars that will be decroated with insects.  These pieces will hopefully be ready for the Nature Art Gallery Show in Raleigh!
