Paper Clay - Porcelain

First time throwing paper clay today.  I used it for hand building before but not throwing.

I threw on the wheel right after the clay, porcelain in this case, was kneaded with tissue paper pulp. The clay was too moist for throwing.  The first pot sagged and I kneaded it back into clay. The second one got a bit better and I only wetted my finger tips. But it's bottom was also saggy which I chose to live with. You can see what I mean in the below picture. By the way, I am still into the whole "Wind in my hands" thing.

Then I made a big coffee mug with handle. The third one should be a keeper.  A good studio day, all in all, let's check out other studios.
