Throwing & Centering
This first video is all about throwing a cylinder with emphasis on centering the clay. Engesath simplifies the centering process by breaking it down into a two-part procedure: raising the clay and lowering the clay. This procedure will allow even the novice to work with relatively large amounts of clay. Other aspects of throwing a cylinder (dropping the well, opening and compacting the floor, building the walls, etc.) are also covered.
