two more soap dishes

Working on a few more ideas for soap dishes.  These do not have the little bars across the inside base, but the next ones will.  No holes, though.  The long, low one is made using an extruder die, and it turned out to be (the die, that is) a one of.  Though I got a number of pieces out of the extruded lengths, the die broke during the extruding.  My next post will be about the problems I am dealing with (and the body tests I am doing) when the clay body I have been using for a number of years no longer performs as it used to.  Phooey!

Soap Dishes

I am making soap dishes--trying all sorts of shapes, and different ways of allowing the soap to drain.  Over the next few months I will be posting some of the results:
about 3" by 3"

also about 3" by 3"
and the backs of the three, trying out different feet, and patterns.
