Here is the ring after firing & polishing. I’m looking for more information on using the Japanese made Ring Maker. It works well to make a seamless ring. I did use the 12mm thick attachment and cut the ring down to the desired thickness.  P.S. Rings are very hard to photograph–I’m still working on it!  This is the best of the first attempt, the hard part was getting the ring to stand.  I ended up using a very small piece of putty.

I have a special order for a ring in which leaves & leaves could be later oxidized. I will post the finished ring, as is is in the kiln at this time. After drawing the lines with a pencil, I first scored the clay, then repeatedly worked the lines into the clay. Later, with a very small paint brush and water, cleaned up  the lines. Many, many incisions later, the lines were formed. I used the new Japanese ring maker for the form.  If anyone has more information on using the ring maker–please let me know!carved1
