A few weeks ago, a student of mine asked me if I could demonstrate throwing a plate for him. It had been a while since I threw a plate so I had to sort of refresh myself the process as I went along. It came back to me fairly easily, but this week, after watching Bill van Gilder’s Pottery Techniques DVD (which has just arrived in the CAD Bookstore!), I picked up a few new tips that it would have been nice to share with my student.

So, for this week’s pottery video of the week, I have excerpted Bill’s plate throwing demo from the DVD. If you are looking for a plate throwing refresher course, or are starting from scratch, this clip is an excellent reference!  – Jennifer Harnetty, Editor
