    Default Pottery glazed on the wheel



    This guy has pretty steady hands. The fun starts after the 3:00 mark, but it's all worth watching.

    That was awesome. I want to see the one he threw after it's been fired.

    I love the fact that with the single mistake he makes, he rolls with it to create something truly awesome.

    Production wares like a BOSS. Thanks for that.
    He applied a thin slip just before the glazes...man it's great to watch a master.

    Pottery was my favorite class in HS. My current retirement plan is to bicycle and fish all spring and summer, hunt ducks at fall/early winter and throw pots on the wheel the rest of the year.

    Interesting technique. Yup you need go timing for that. Also, throwing off the hump is not something I was ever great at. Practice is king.

    Critically speaking and slip work aside it's a bit of a dumpy form and I'm guessing it'll pour like shit. Unless he's gonna work the spout once it firms up. Be good for flowers anyway.

    Hugs.

    As good as the guy in my first post is, there is a reason some people are called "master".

    That's awesome, I have pottery like that from Turkey, but they make it all over Eastern Europe. As Too Tall said it's actually a slip which has been heavily deflocculated to make it runny. My professor at Mass. Art made work inspired by English and early American slipware

    Sweet, Korean pottery is one of my favorites.



    Check out these old films.. at just after 7 minutes they show one of my most favorite potters, Shimaoka Tatsuzo as a young artist. I met him in Boston in 1997 after he was designated a living treasure by the government. His pots were mega mega big bucks $$$$$ Now they are affordable on the secondary market and I've collected a few.
