This piece with the ripples was from a tutorial of ripple surface effect by Dennis Gooding on another site his was a random ripple and he got a 50% success rate so I was pretty pleased to have managed to complete this on my first but then I did cheat to get mine to ripple and in a more uniform way

Lovely piece of work again Derek, I’m intrigued as to how you have achieved this though!!

It was turned wet and then allowed to dry which causes the ripples but for some reason this did not totally work so I then poured boiling water over with the result of only half of the fins rippling. I got my wife to buy some wooden cloths pegs which I split into half and again poured boiling water over the fins and inserted the tapered end of the pegs so that it produced the pattern you see here. They stayed in until the wood was dry again. The pot needed a very light skim to straighten the sides, then the finish was applied.
