In order to get the ‘right’ shape, I sometimes have to make things on the potter’s wheel in sections. Giant apples certainly demand the ‘throwing on top’ method of construction where by the base is thrown, allowed to harden for stability (leather hard) and then fresh clay attached to the top and I’m off again. These terracotta beauts still need a third section thrown in and angled down to achieve the effect.
