Large and In Charge: Four Helpful Tips for Throwing Large Pots on the Pottery Wheel

Posted On September 2, 2013 12 Comments

Today, I am presenting some tips from large-pot-potter extraordinaire Nic Collins for upsizing your pots. I liked what Nic had to say here because it addressed some simple, but often overlooked, things to consider before you even put your clay on the wheel. Plus, it includes some great cross-section diagrams that clearly show what should be happening both inside and outside of the pot. Follow these tips and you’ll soon be in charge of the clay!

Throwing large work is a challenging area and takes a different approach than throwing normal ware. This book looks at throwing purely from the perspective of making very large work. It assumes you can already throw, but different techniques are needed when making large work because of all the added problems. This book covers the various techniques used as well as how to avoid disastrous pitfalls.
