Chanukiah Assembly 1

Now I start sticking the rings together - upside down for support and stability - using suitable lumps of soft clay and SLIPPO,my wonderful altered slip [it's flocculated! it's deflocculated!] that needs no scoring,doesn't crack on drying and sticks like crazy. Would you like the recipe?
I'm intentionally generous with the clay - trimming and tidying comes later. in the last [top] picture,the ring section has been gingerly lowered onto a rolled/slabbed SLIPPO'd strip and carefully secured - this is to stop the arms of the chanukiah waving about during drying and firing;maybe it's unnecessary,but I've never dared to fire one without it.
