Throwing Demonstrations: Stew Bowls

In this video I throw bowls with 1lb 8oz balls of clay. I’m throwing on a Leach style treadle wheel in my home studio. I use a StudioPro bat system, a Troy Bungart pottery rib and knife, and a trim tool from Bill van Gilder (links to the websites are below). If you have any questions please leave a comment. And if you haven’t already, like and share the video, and subscribe to the channel

Throwing Mugs on my Leach Treadle Wheel

Are you old like me? Do you have limited flexibility in your hands and fingers? Or are you not very good at pulling handles? You can still throw mugs and throw a bunch of them! In this demonstration I walk through how I throw mugs, the tools I use and each step of the creation process.

Throwing a colander on my treadle wheel

In this video I demonstrate how I make colanders. I like my colanders a little on the heavy side, with a thick rounded rim and a tall foot. I put large lug handles on as well. The holes are all relatively small and they are all the same size so the final product can be used as both a colander and a berry bowl. I hope you enjoy the video! Please feel free to critique my work, product or video in the comments.
