How to texture the inside of a bowl while it is still wet. Chattering is the technique.

Video

I am demonstrating how to texture the inside of a bowl while opening it up. The technique is called chattering. It takes some practice, but give it a try.

This is a link to a picture of the bowl:

How I throw a bowl on the potters wheel. For lefties!

Video

This video was short but i thought it was cool. There is no narrative, Just me making a bowl. I am a lefty, so I do have an unorthodox throwing style. I live in a right handed world, and have just adapted. I use two mudtools in this video. Sorry I was not very descriptive, but this was a self shot video using my phone with clay to hold my phone in the right angle…

These are the ribs I use:

DSCN8150Sunny ceramic mixing bowl

Making wheel thrown ceramic bowls that depict nature has always inspired me. This bowl was made to depict the sun. The vivid color will certainly add some pop of color to any room in your house! Impress your friends and family by serving your favorite dish in this!

I made this bowl on my potters wheel. I then used some slips mixed mason stains to create the color and design. There are two techniques I used. One is called slip trailing and the other is called feathering. after the first firing, I applied a clear glaze on the inside and a yellow and orange glaze to the outside and fired this bowl again.

All materials used to make this are non toxic and food safe. It is also safe for microwave and dishwasher use. It measures 10 1/2 inches wide and is 4 1/2 inches tall. Thank you for looking!
