Today’s video comes from my good friend and instructor Lisa Bare Culp. In this video, Lisa gives a refresher course on throwing good strong bowls on the potter’s wheel, but then reminds us that round isn’t always best. Sometimes alterations to thrown forms can take a good pot to an even higher level! Use Lisa’s demonstration as a starting point and see what other interesting shapes you can come up with.
