Throwing a Cup

This is the first time I have ever filmed myself throwing something on the wheel. I will work up the courage to talk throughout one yet just so you know what I am doing.
1.First you centre the clay on the wheel,
2.Find the top centre and open it.
3.Then pull up the walls. You also need to compress the bottom of the cup and I also compress the rim.
4.Cut it off the wheel head and put on a drying board.

  1. I like how confident your hand work is and how gestural with all the various finger positions and angling of the hand. Fascinating to watch!
