Symmetrical vases were about 20-25 inches (50-63 centimeters) in height and had funds over black with red paint. Create your own vase on pottery wheel house without using air-drying clay with a coil method, where parts are stacked to form snake-shaped vessel.

Stretch a snake-shaped cylinder with a handful of air-drying clay vases. Clay sprayed with a water bottle if it is dry, or let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes, if it is too wet. Form the cylinder until it is approximately 0.5 to 0.75 inches (1-2 centimeters) wide and 10 inches (25 centimeters) long for the base of the clay vases. Surrounds the cylinder so that the two ends meet. Place it on its wooden base 8 inches (20.32 centimeters), which serves as the basis for the entire project while working. Sharpen the ends together. Stretched three cylinders of the same thickness. Make one that is 10 inches long (25 centimeters), the second of 11 inches (27 centimeters) and the third of 12 inches (30.4 centimeters).

Mix 2 tablespoons of clay and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl to form slurry, which is liquid clay that acts as mortar between the cylinders for this project. With a brush craft adds a thin layer on the first cylinder. Wrap the long cylinder of 10 inches (25 centimeters) newly formed in a circle and place it on the first layer. Press them with your fingers to join them. Wrapped cylinders 11 inches (27 centimeters) and 12 inches (30 centimeters) in circles. Applying a thin layer of slurry on the last layer of the cylinder. Add the cylinder of 11 inches (27 centimeters) above. Another layer tends to slip. Press cylinder 12 inches (30 centimeters) on your clay vases project. Gently smooth the layers together. Once you’ve added all the layers, performs a smoothing end so that the cylinders will not see

Stretch cylinders 13, 14 and 15 inches (33, 35 and 38 centimeters) with clay. Surrounds each cylinder in a circle. Tends slip layer upon layer of cylinders that have already ended. Press cylinder 13 inches (33 centimeters) above. Repeat with the 14 and 15 inches (35 to 38 centimeters). Slowly your vase is becoming wider. Another cylinder stretches 15 inches (38 centimeters) and then 14 and 13 inches (35 to 33 centimeters) to slowly bend the vase into a thinner shape. Surround each cylinder. Alisa entire outer cylinder of clay with your fingers. Moisten your fingers to help with anti-aliasing. Once the cylinders are no longer visible, a small sponge moistened. Alisa outside the vase.
