Thinking of form again. Like I said in recent blogs, I enjoy the slenderness of the taller pushed in pot as long as the height is in the top part and not in the rotund bottom part, These pots are more dramatic and give a vertical dimension to the "scene" which is the focal point of the work, they also allow the sculpture to be upright instead of seated in the pot.
The first form above is close to perfect, the lines are natural and beautiful, they remind of the leaves and rosebuds that I sculpt on. All forms are reminiscent of the female anatomy, but these have more narrow openings which I prefer. The second form has a nice shoulder on it, variety of form is exciting and keeps the works fresh.
