Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: classes, process

Last night in my wheelthrowing class we worked on “throwing with intention.” Deciding what shape you want and then actually making it… instead of letting the wheel “decide” for you. But there was a small twist… my students each drew three little sketches out of a jar and had to throw those shapes. Trying to match the shape and the geometry of the drawing as close as possible. A great challenge for potters of all levels… always fun to practice the basic skills!
