Simple vases, very narrow cylinders thrown from roughly two-hundred grams of clay. Trimmed once leather hard by wetting the wheel-head and tap centring them thoroughly until they stick firmly in place. Then I can trim the sides with relative ease without the use of a chuck or a grip of sorts, although I do always have my left hand at the ready to catch them incase they fly off after snagging on a tool.
Glazed with thick feldspathic guan type glazes and fired together in bunches with only a millimetre or two between them. The glaze barely moves but around the bottoms you can see a little roll of glaze, where it has flowed slightly and gathered up, thankfully it tends not to budge past where it’s applied to, meaning I can glaze very low to the bottom of the pots.
Narrow cylinders aren’t stable objects and these, at only two and half centimetres across, are quite susceptible to toppling if knocked. I know of some potters who fill the bases of their pots like this with sand or another heavy material when displaying them, to act as ballast.
I haven’t thrown any for a while this thin but I got used to doing so using a throwing stick on the inside mainly, instead of fingers after a certain point. It was quite miraculous how thin and tall such a small lump of clay could go but it required sometime getting the hang of the technique.
I haven’t mentioned this yet but can we take a moment to appreciate that Instagram finally made it so paragraphs appear with gaps in-between? (I know it’s been around a while now but for years it made all my posts look like giant walls of text).
You’ll find cute little old-fashioned cafés like this in parks on Grand Canaria. You can order beer, cocktails, and coffee along with sandwiches and desserts while you people-watch to your heart’s content. And the people get more interesting at night!

Cherries of the night are riper
Than the cherries pluckt at noon
Gather to your fairy piper
When he pipes his magic tune: Merry, merry, Take a cherry; Mine are sounder, Mine are rounder, Mine are sweeter For the eater Under the moon.
And you’ll be fairies soon. —Robert Graves
