Posted 30 Apr 2013So sorry to hear of your loss. Your father sounds like a wonderful man. May you cherish your memories of him and find comfort from them.
In Topic: Please help me choose between Thomas Stuart vs. Shimpo VL Whisper wheels. Stool suggestions are also welcome.
Posted 5 Apr 2013Where are you located? Are there any local community art centers or studios near you which may have different wheels set up so you could go and try them? Maybe you could call and ask if you could come in to test them out, or perhaps sign up for a one semester class so you can have access to the facilities. Even though I have a studio at home, I like to take occasional classes elsewhere just for fun and to meet other people making pottery.
Posted 30 Mar 2013If you are having trouble when you are opening and you think your clay was reasonably centered when you started, it may be that you are throwing it off center when you open it. I often see students letting go of the clay abruptly when they open. Often this will knock it off center, then it becomes increasingly difficult to recenter and throw. When you open, (no matter what method you use for that), make sure the clay is wet enough not to stick to your fingers, then once you have created the initial hole in the middle of the ball of clay - using enough pressure for that - try to relax your hands before you let go so that you release the clay gently, not suddenly.
Best of luck to you!

Posted 26 Feb 2013When they talk about the invention of the wheel, it means the potter's wheel.
Posted 16 Jan 2013Thanks for the update about your surgery and rehab afterwards. It's great that you're doing so well. Congratulations on the good grade from the doctor!
Even though I mostly lurk on these forums, I always enjoy reading your posts, so I hope we will continue to hear from you.
