You may remember my post on Saggars and some of my results. I really want to talk a bit more how these wobbly pots are made.
This week marks to start of the BBC’s Great British Pottery Throw Down, and from the pottery community there has been a mixed response as expected. Personally I am feeling more upbeat about the program.
Patia Davies film on making buttons shows a real sense of rhythm to life and the processes she is going through. The video isn’t a video of a teacher standing in front of a class and doesn’t stop to explain. For someone with a background in making there is a lot she is teaching and a lot to learn. We see in this video there is efficiency to making buttons as they are a by-product of making platters.
