Any potters on here?


I read a book on the history of pottery and am thinking of practising throwing and all the different glazings. Just seeing the different styles from history is really intriguing.

Any potters on here with experience trying this out? Do you have any advice for a new potter?

I'm not a potter, but I have worked with clay before and had classes in art school. It is a lot of fun. Get a big piece of plywood and stretch some thick canvas over it and get a spray bottle with water and a few plastic dropcloths and tools and you are in business.

This guy does pottery. Spins the turntable, throws on more clay, wets his hand and runs it around the rim, whistles, talks and goes home at the end of the day. Don't know what he says though as it's all Greek to me....
