Free Video Recommendations for Potters

Recommended Posts

Thought I'ld start a thread for people to post links to some of their favourite or recommended online free videos. So many of us stuck at home now I thought it would be a good resource to help pass the time.

I'll start it off with an exhibition of wood fired pots from Britain's Svend Bayer. Just came out today, it will be his last exhibition. It includes a section of Svend Bayer working, firing and talking about his work. Beautiful pots.

I really enjoy goldmark galleries features on artists, here's a link to their 14 short films on potters: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFvUht41DkhImM4CVUwsE7r4WVJqN6V8q

Here's some of my favorite channels as well

Hsinchuen lin: https://www.youtube.com/user/hsinchuen

Simon leach (yes THAT leach): https://www.youtube.com/user/sleachpots

Ingleton pottery: https://www.youtube.com/user/youdanxxx

Matthew Kelly pottery: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC19npAMIfG47wgdrFX--4zw

 

And of course the obligatory shameless self promotion of my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRyK3g9rImtTJfaI5iGAP4w

I'm in no way the same league as the ones above me, they are all seasoned professional teachers and you'll learn a lot watching them.

Simon is more comfort food than learning experience, I'll give you that.  He's a comforting figure you can tune into for some soul time.  He has about 100 videos on making tankards but his British charm and soothing voice are something that I tune into just for fun.

There are days where I will have my laptop sitting behind me and have his videos playing while I throw.

 

Something about that damn voice, makes you feel comfortable on the wheel.
