Steps:
Throw IMCO Sculpture 50 cone 6 clay very slowly developing a conical bore that widens from top to bottom.
Trim when leather hard with sharp tools scaling up all measurements to anticipate 12.3% shrinkage after firings.
Fit sections together carefully, leaving room for corking.
Drill holes with slight under chamfer, spacing similar to a baroque oboe.
Smooth hole surfaces with fine slip.
Ready for undergazing and bisque firing, followed by glazing and final firing.
Should fit a standard English horn bocal/double reed.
