Thank you bsiskepottery for the link! Will have a look if this helps.


Neil: I don't know whether it was only matt glaze. It looked a lot like velvet. But it was matt, yes.


Hey John, how are you doing? Yes, beautiful work in the exhibition. Maybe you saw the piece I'am talking about: it was mounted on the last pilaster in the room in direction of the coffee room, to the right. It looks like a big round wavy collar. It is possible that the Lady who did it used the second technique you describe. Awwww, let me find a picture of the piece or else the name of the artist. Will be back soon...


Thank you all for answering!




PS: I couldn't download the picture, so John, I'll send it to you by email. I hope that's ok with you. Thank you!

In Topic: Pinch Pots

Great that you are doing Antoinette's e-course! You will learn to make your own tools out of almost everything (beer cans among others). For the pinch pots, cut a beer can in shapes you need for the pinched pot. Bigger ones, smaller ones, every shape you need.

I like the pinch pot that you made in the course! And also, like other members, I like the uneven rim. It's very personal.

Have fun!


In Topic: Does Your Dominant Hand Dictate Form Or Are You Ambidextrous.

Rt handed, wheel counter-clockwise ( an endangered term!  ;) ), left hand inside, can throw reverse (clockwise) if pressed to do so, ambidextrous to a good degree. (Former professional drummer... that helps that too.)






Same as John here, minus the drums. For pulling up: left hand inside. For bellying out: right hand inside. Ambidextrous because I was a piano teacher way back when....
