New YouTube Video: Pottery Techniques – Throwing on Bats

I’ve had a YouTube account for a while now and haven’t really used it very much…so I thought it was time to utilise it and get myself out there a bit more!

In the past I have mainly used YouTube to watch and listen to music, and I have kept all the music videos I have favourited in the past. Adding to this I am uploading ceramic/pottery tutorials and some slideshows of my drawings and photography.

As some readers may know I teach ceramics/pottery from my studio and so am often demonstrating and instructing during class. However,it often needs a few demos for concepts to become solidified in students’ minds – so, what better way than to have some video tutorials they can watch from home to help strengthen their learning.

This is the latest video tutorial I have uploaded, and features me demonstrating the technique of throwing on bats (no not the flying animal kind).

Throwing on bats (boards)is ideal for throwing multiples in one session – it is especially suitable for throwing bowls and platters as it allows you to remove them from the wheelhead without warping.

So, have a look, and checkout some of my others videos while you are there πŸ™‚

  1. Dawn, this is fabulous! You obviously are not only super-skilled at throwing, but you make it look like this is so easy (and I know from my own experience, it’s the total opposite!!) The bowl is beautiful you’ve made and it’s not even bisque’d yet!! Also want to add how wonderful it is to hear your voice, after two years or so of following your great blogs. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Patricia!! I may make it look easy but that is after YEARS!! When I first began… YIKES!! LOL

      Yes, it I funny hearing peoples voices for the first time – you kind of have preconceived ideas in your head about people ….also I find it odd to listen to yourself. I often think is that how I sound??

      Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚
