Even the Pros Mess Up Spouts! Potter Lorna Meaden Demonstrates “A Great Way to Fix a Spout You Ruined”

After I spouted off about spouts (sorry, I couldn’t resist) last week, Ceramic Arts Daily was all abuzz with comments asking for close up video of spout making. So I am making it my mission to find a good close up spout demonstration for you. But in the mean time, I thought I would show you a tasty little tidbit on spouts from the Potters Council Expressive Surfaces Workshop a couple of weeks ago. In it, Lorna Meaden explains a great way to fix a messed-up spout by adding coils when the pot is leather hard and re-pulling the spout. Not only is it a great way to fix mess-ups, but it is also a great way to add length to a pulled spout.
Now, a quick disclaimer: The video isn’t as still as I would like it to be because I was having zoom trouble with my camera and free-handing it a bit. So please go easy on me, folks! I thought the information contained in the video was good enough that it was worth watching despite a couple of shaky spots. Hope you agree! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
