THROWING A PLATE ON THE POTTERS WHEEL - JAN 23, 2021

Throwing a Plate

on the potters wheel…. not at someone. This weekend, as part of my regular Saturday morning pottery classes, we are going to be discussing plates! Plates are the potters canvas and they’re good to eat off of as well!

I will be showing how to throw a standard dinnerware type plate and discuss how to throw multiples of the same object. The discussion will also cover throwing more sculptural plates that are intended to be on the wall as opposed to the table. Part of this demonstration will cover how to trim plates for functional use as well as making some accommodation for hanging on the wall.
