Building form for a week

I wanted to do a ceramics series since its summer and I am in between projects and studios. The grandfather of modernist pottery is Georges Jouve. In a modernist decorative arts store you will see a Prouve piece and Mouille Lamp and a ceramic piece by Jouve all done in Paris in the 50's. I love this cylinder shape because I now know that a 6" tall cylinder is one of the first acts to master on a potters wheel. See Patrick Seguin's web site for the greatest hits of French modernism
