THROWING ON THE POTTER'S WHEEL
potter's wheel & clay
We are seeing some mighty good progress at the end of our second week on the wheel.
They have all got the hang of centering the clay,
and are now practicing recentering passes
and pulling up and thinning their walls.
Doing the "donut".
We are not seeing much height yet,
possibly we will by the end of next week.
We have two students who have now thrown their required two cylinders
and are ready to move onto vase forms next.
Senior Klyne M is having the time of her life on the wheel,
while senior Eryne B. is recycling her slippy bucket of clay.
Clean up is the worse part.
But instead of taking 15 minutes like it did the first week,
they've got it down to 10. "_
