  1. Centering is my first task/goal for students (newbies). After that the first project is a cylinder. Getting the clay to go upward in a cylindrical form that is the same diameter at the top through the middle to the base of the piece specifically is what I am looking for. I want students to learn to control the clay and the from, as well as, to have intention while pulling up and throwing in general rather than saying "I meant to do that" when something collapses, flares, etc. I teach my students that there are three keys to success at the potter's wheel. 1- Keep your clay centered. 2- Have full control (of clay, wheel and your body). 3- Have patience.
