Throw 3 even-walled donuts using Soldate 60 clay, closing them carefully to avoid collapse.
Throw the mouthpiece receiver and bell.
Dry until leather hard.
Punch airflow holes between donuts, then punch finger holes.
Assemble the parts by slipping and scoring.
Underglaze, bisque fire, glaze, then final fire at cone 6-10 (vitrifies best at cone 10).
Surprisingly capable little instrument (after some practice); small cup mouthpiece preferred.
