Wheel Throwing Video: How to Throw and Facet a Pitcher on the Pottery Wheel

Posted By Stephen Jepson On October 30, 2009 @ 7:39 am In Daily,Features,Video,Wheel Throwing Techniques | 42 Comments

Potter Stephen Jepson refines a spout on a wheel thrown pitcher. Pitchers are a project that I rarely take on. Not sure why. Well, maybe I do know why: I always end up with wimpy, anemic little spouts. And, guess what? Those spouts are not getting any less anemic because I am not practicing them because I rarely do pitchers.

 

So today I thought I would share a great little pitcher video from Stephen Jepson (an excerpt from his DVD . Not only does Stephen address the spout factor, but he demonstrates a faceting technique that is loads of fun. Enjoy! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
