Neil Estrick shows how he holds a sponge when throwing a vase on the pottery wheelSometimes even the simplest tips can make all the difference. I like to use a sponge when throwing to keep things lubricated, but sometimes the sponge can create a drag. But when I saw Neil Estrick's twist on throwing with a sponge, I knew I had to try it. It's the simplest little tweak, but I had never thought of it myself and when I tried it, it really helped.

Neil Estrick's new video How to Throw a Large Vase is loaded with great tips, so today I am going to share a couple (including the sponge tip) in today's post. Hope they are helpful to you! - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor.
