On the Wheel Again

 

Working with clay involves multiple steps, and while the jewelry pieces are in the kiln I have time to trim some speckled pieces I threw earlier this week.

I enjoy hand building porcelain jewelry, but I find  the pottery wheel especially cathartic.

There are many ways to trim a piece.  I prefer throwing a clay chuck, which is the plate-like surface you see on the wheel.  Chucks provide stability and a cushion to your thrown piece, which prevents the rims from distorting.

Brent wheels are my favorite, and you see that I've found a nice space to work.  You can check out the pottery wheel selection at Armadillo Clay, a one-stop ceramics store in Austin, Texas.
