“I am so happy that someone has finally stated plainly some clear cut steps for beginning potters. Center, open, set bottom, raise wall, compress rim. Pottery has never been so logical. My pottery has definitely improved since I watched your tape. I’ve lent it to several people in my class and they had visible improvement in their work also. You’re also the first instructor who told me what tools I need and what they are used for. Thank you for all your help! I’m anxiously waiting for my next tape.”

INTRODUCTION TO THROWING
Introduction to Throwing has helped thousands improve their throwing
skills. The video begins with the basics of centering, opening, and
pulling up a wall, then progresses step by step through more complex
techniques. You will learn to throw plates, platters, saucers, mugs,
cups, bowls, pitchers, how to trim, pull handles, make spouts and more.
I cannot make you a master potter in two weeks, but this video will
show you the basics in a way you can understand and assimilate. If you
are thinking of beginning, this video will start you right; if you have
