I was given a Sueki ring shaped bottle late kofun 6thC ad Japan;I have some ideas on how I would make them them, but I`m curious to know how someone else out there would choose to form them.
I've seen Native American pots in this shape, also--maybe someone could comment. ( http://worldvisitgui...le/MS05216.html, towards the bottom)

I don't know the use of the ones from Japan. Maybe John Baymore knows.

Simple trick. just takes some practice making it, but much easier than learning how to throw a plate.

Students get a kick out of it.
I find it interesting that they were worn on the arm as water jugs for peasants working in the fields. I have seen them made by contemporary potters in Spain and in archaeological museum all over Europe. They seem to be pretty universal.
