Punch Bowl Progression

First day: 6 bowls attempted, 1 bowl completed... Second day: 7 bowls attempted, 3 bowls completed... Third day: 5 bowls attempted, 0 bowls completed...

I had set out to make an elegant punch bowl to go with my elegant goblets, but it took some getting used to 7 lbs of clay. I've been hesitant to throw that much in the past since either I didn't care to, or I was afraid to. I consider that 2nd day a success, although the 3rd was a disappointment and I decided my body had taken enough torture, so I moved on to mugs. A week and a half later my lower back is still in pain. Lovely.
