This was a coil pot that was meant to be higher, but the coils got away from me so I had to fall back to an organic look, using a wooden spoon to pat down to smoothness. Then I used my fingers, a paintbrush and a vacuum to get rid of the scraps from the etchings. The bottom of the pot is a rolled out slab using a paper cutout for measurement.
