The Shrimpo

An exploratory 5kg bowl on the new Whisper [43 cms wide,19 high,for those who care]. As I suspected,the wheel was not altogether thrilled to be handling the torque on a 5kg lump- pressing down while centring,it was quite easy to get the head to slip,although it picked up after a few seconds.It wasn't hard to centre the clay;it just required a slightly changed grip,and a touch more water to lubricate.Thereafter,all was fine:the bowl did start to move in mysterious ways at some point,but this was my usual sloppy wedging,not wheel-related. I guess this is the price of silence,but I still think/hope we're going to be very happy together
