I have been updating my website today in order to add a tutorial on how to throw Skinner blended colored clay.

 

http://www.ccpottery...lored-clay.html

 

I am not a quick thrower anymore since I seldom use my wheel for anything other than making support forms for my work.

But ... I have been so fortunate to have workshop hosts and attendees who are great throwers offer to try some experiments for me. The results are so inspiring I feel a definite tug towards the wheel again.

 

Thanks so much to Tony Clennell and Mike Lalone for the throwing and to Heidi McKenzie for taking a zillion pictures during my recent workshop and then actually sending them to me ... Yeah!! :D Thanks to them all I have been able to add a lot of teaching content to the site.

 

If anyone has any other tutorials they would like to see there, let me know and I will do it if I have images.

 

... and yes, someday I will get around to doing the video that everyone is bugging me to do. :ph34r: :D

Wow this is beautiful and gives me soooo many ideas of things to try. The ones white inside with colours juste on the outside are really awesome!


Things that gets me inspired : Creative Thinking

If I were not so lazy ( I hate cleaning up after throwing all day ) I would try my hand at throwing with the Skinner blends ... fortunately I still have a bunch of talented clay buddies who will be more than happy to play and experiment.

That said however ... moment by moment I get more tempted.
