I taught this student how to throw “off the hump” as a way of speeding up the throwing process. This can be particularly helpful in a two hour evening class at Greenwich Community College as centering small lumps of clay can be time consuming.

Five similar vessels produced ready for turning.

I make my katori bowls june 2014 using this same method.

Watch this video on youtube to see exactly how its done
