Doodle bowls

To teach myself to be a better potter, I am making 100 wonky bowls.  They are decorated in different ways and it is giving me the chance to experiment with decoration techniques and clay bodies whilst keeping the form essentially the same.  The idea from these came from two places.  The Asian restaurant in town called the 'noodle bowl'.  I liked the sound of it...and from some doodle drawings I made once during a staff meeting.......I plan to go back to a few old diaries and school planning books and hunt out other doodles.  I like the unplanned, unconscious sprawling nature of them. I wonder if out there in the world is someone who has a job working with analysing peoples doodle drawings!
