Throwing cups and mugs is one of my favorite things to do on the wheel. Partially out of habit, and partially because I secretly love trimming, I usually end up trimming these forms. But I realize that I could be more efficient with my studio time if I just threw these pots so they didn’t need to be trimmed.
In this clip, an excerpt from her DVD Fundamentals of Wheel Throwing, Jennifer Allen explains how to throw a curvy cup that doesn’t require trimming, and then finish it without trimming. – Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor.
