    1. Hi Steve, After discussing this with you at the open day I have been trying to make the bases wider each time, though I’m afraid I haven’t cut any in half yet to check the thickness, I just used my needle to check, (I’m sorry, still attached to my beloved pots!) but from now on I will. I’ve bought myself a big plastic ‘reclaiming’ bin…I like the motto. That was a really good clip, thanks.Donna

    4. So good of you to share your techniques with us. After all these years I never knew how to bring up the extra on the bottom. I’ve seen other potters doing it, but no one ever explained it that I recall. I can do it, but differently. Holding the outside, I dig in from the inside. I struggle and spend a lot of time pulling minute amounts up and weakening the walls. You’re a very good teacher. I’m so glad I discovered your vids.

    5. Just had to let you know, I’ve never had to think about getting my cylinders light enough at the base since I saw your demo and explanation. If I had to pick the one most helpful hint for throwing, this would be it! much appreciation,Sharon

    7. Thank you for your videos. I’m just getting back into clay after 18 years hiatus. I threw three pots last night at an adult ed. class. They came out well for such a long break, but I wish I had seen these videos, first. This will help a lot.
