Super Smart Trimming Chuck

jabburchuck_620I typically think of trimming chucks as nuclear-cooling-tank-shaped cylinders that vases or teapots are put into for trimming. But Mike Jabbur’s chucks are a bit different. Mike makes tall, narrow chucks that actually fit inside the pots that are being trimmed, thus protecting the active walls of his vessels. Have a look at this excerpt from our compilation DVD Getting Creative with Spouts and Handles, (which is on sale this weekend!) to see how these smart chucks work.- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
