Here is a finished soup bowl I brought from the showroom to model. These are kinda labor intensive for a small piece(for me anyways): they have a pulled handle and a turned foot, how crazy is that?!! Everytime I make them I wonder why I don't just leave a flat bottom on these and cut the turning(aka:trimming) stage out completely. Then I remember my committment to craftsmanship and pride for my work, oh yeah.... I like to do what industry can't or won't otherwise what's the point?
Here is a short video of Willem Gebben-one of my favorite potters, if not the favorite. The narration is...well...you'll see. Kent Harris found this and shared it on Facebook and now it is my gift to you. Enjoy.
