In Advanced Throwing Projects & Techniques, Stephen leads you through a series of projects, demonstrating each from centering through trimming. He works fast (good thing there’s a pause button) but he doesn’t miss a step. When you’ve completed the examples, your work will take a giant leap forward and you’ll gain the confidence you need to branch out into other forms.
   
Demonstrations include making bottles, closed forms, covered jars, and casseroles; simple ways to get lids to fit as well as six different kinds of lids you can make; forming goblets and water glasses using several techniques; throwing off the hump, making donuts, and even a segment on how to learn to tap on center. Throughout each demonstration, Stephen includes useful tips that you usually only find at workshops.

The DVD begins with throwing forms and also how to throw off the hump, then moves on to various trimming techniques demonstrated on the forms thrown in the first section. The variety of trimming techniques is helpful, because Stephen has really developed lots of ways to streamline the process with great results. In the last section, he shows how to assemble a teapot and the goblets from the parts thrown earlier. Any aspect of the DVD can be utilized in a host of other projects, so his demos are truly a springboard to new opportunities in the studio.
  

Stephen has taught hundreds of potters who want to improve their skills. He maintains that exciting times lie ahead as you try out and learn the processes he demonstrates, and he includes all the things in the DVD that he considers to be the most important. Isn’t it time you moved ahead with your pottery?
