Clear pitcher - V
Here is another pitcher.
Last week we learned new technique to pull bottles. Instead of heating and dropping it, this time we heat and pull it with jacks. I then applied a drop foot on it, then included a handle. Here is the final product. My hand slipped the first time, so it got stuck to the bottle. The second time, I got the handle and shape correct. Its my best piece so far.
