For this pottery project you will want
- one to three pounds of a mid-range or high-fire clay body that is easily worked on the wheel as well as hand building
- food-safe glazes
- throwing tools.
Form the bowl of the goblet using the pinch method. Smooth the interior completely, for food safety. You can leave the exterior craggy and with forming marks, as I have done with my example goblet bowl, or you can smooth it out as well.
Tip: Use a small cup to rest your goblet's bowl on after you've formed it to keep it from deforming when you put it down. I use plastic medicine cups for this purpose (as well as for holding small amounts of underglaze or slip).
