Here is a nice video showing Antoinette Badenhorst throwing a thin wide rimmed bowl with Southern Ice Porcelain.



Enjoy!

Added on June 20 ... Video of trimming that same bowl

thank you! throwing with a sponge is always easier when working with porcelain. keeps the messiness out of throwing.

Whew, that was a tall cone, at the start!

That was indeed thin, for it's size. Pretty sure I could 't do that, without flopping it.

And why did it look, like there was a bat, on top a bat? What is this, Batception?

Nice. She had a pretty significant wobble early in the process, but was able to work through it quite gracefully. I'd have probably given up on that one as a bad job.

Yes, resisting the urge to attack wobbles is definitely on the learning curve of throwing. Slow and steady ... note as well the same wheel speed throughout.
I liked the way she opened up the clay with the heel of her hand ... Gonna do that next time.

I've just edited the original post and added on a new video of her trimming the bowl .... A few techniques I had not seen before.
