Art Is...Ceramics: Throwing Funcunctional Form

( 36:43 )

This introduction to throwing functional pottery illustrates how to throw basic forms and demonstrates how to trim finished pieces. Ceramist Alleghany Meadows shows how to create functional forms including a drinking mug, a vase, a pitcher with a handle, and a plate. Close-ups of the techniques and cross-sections of the forms bring the process to life. Ceramics: Basic Throwing Skills is also available and complements this program.

"The close-ups and monologue by Meadows are excellent, enabling students to view and review techniques they will need to acquire to help them become competent potters" Arts and Activities
