Wheel Throwing Video: How to Throw a Large Bowl on the Pottery Wheel

click to enlarge

We’ve featured a few videos on throwing large pots here on Ceramic Arts Daily (you can see these here in the video archives). But I’m a firm believer that, with clay, it is never redundant to see a process you think you know very well done by another potter. So I decided to feature another large pot video today.


In this video, an excerpt from Stephen Jepson’s DVD How to Throw Large Pots, potter Bill Gossman shows us his method for making a really large bowl in two sections. Bill has a couple of tricks up his sleeves that I hadn’t thought of previously. In pottery, there is always more to learn! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
