The step-by-step demonstration with cross-sections shown for each stage clearly explains the technique of throwing a cylinder as well as a bowl.

"It is obvious that Meadows is a skilled instructor who is very comfortable teaching beginner potters. His methods are easy to understand, and he thoroughly explains each movement as he performs it. I highly recommend this video to any beginning potter"" Pottery Production Practices.
