Beginners First Thrown Pots

Examples of first ever thrown work from the ceramics evening classes I’m currently teaching  at Greenwich Community College, using the “no centering method” taught to me by Takeshi Yasuda.

Bone dry                                                             Leatherhard

Raw stoneware clay thrown one week, then turned the next, when the work has become “leatherhard”,  meaning stiff enough to turn upside down, recentre and using turning tools, make a foot ring.

Well done everyone, how different they will look when glazed and ready to take home to enjoy.
