A few weeks back, at the NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference, the CAD booth was set up across from the Skutt booth. Over the course of the three days we were in the exhibitor hall, Scott Semple worked on a giant pot in the Skutt booth. By the end of the conference, it was taller than me (and I am 5’10”). It was pretty amazing to watch all of this transpire. Then, at the end of the conference, when we were all tearing down our booths, Scott pushed it off the wheel and sent it crashing to the ground (to the sound of gasps and shrieks).

Well, Scott just wrapped up an instructional DVD on big pot throwing and, for those of you who missed the conference, I am presenting an excerpt from it today. In the DVD, Scott throws one of these babies over the course of only one day and shares all of the secrets to pulling off such a feat. This clip is slightly condensed, but it is still packed with a lot of great information. Enjoy! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
