Making a human bust is probably the most intimidating project I ever faced. I have now made several, and each time, my stomach flops in anticipation. How will it turn out? Will I do a good job? Will it look terrible?

The neck will be a coil, and the bust will be another shallow pinch pot. Make a vent hole though the bottom of the sculpture into the skull so that you do not have an enclosed form.
