It’s not often I get attached to things I make, but I’m feeling slightly sad to see this piece go! I really enjoyed the technical challenge of making the ‘shell’. It took quite a lot of attempts to get the proportions of the spiral correct and I had to work with the clay when it was quite hard so the shell didn’t collapse (as it’s totally hollow and made from lots of coils). It was also quite difficult attaching the ‘tendrils’ so they remained vertical and didn’t flop. I hope the new owner enjoys looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it!
