Step-by-step Lemon Juicer Throwing Demo


Home Pottery tips Contact us


SPECIAL CENTERING

To Center, begin with a mound
that is low and wide.



SPECIAL OPENING I

Open a channel about three inches
from the center.



SPECIAL OPENING II

Open the inner mound all the
way to the wheel head.



SPECIAL OPENING III

Pull opening about 2 and a half
inches out and re-center Reamer.



PULL REAMER

Pull normally into small bottle shape.



CLOSE IN REAMER

With very wet hands, make a triangle
with your fingers and squeeze the
reamer closed at the top.



TRIM REAMER

Trim excess clay from top with needle
tool. It is normal for unevenness to
migrate to the top when choking in
a bottle. But you have to cut it off
to finish it.



CLOSE OVER REAMER

Close the reamer completely. This will
trap air inside the reamer; this stabilizes
the inner part so that it is harder to
accidentally ruin it.



SHAPE REAMER

Run a rib up the side in a spiral, by
bringing it up "too" fast.



PULLING/SHAPING WALLS

Pull walls normally, to a height slightly
higher than the reamer if you want to
trim the bottom.



SPECIAL FINISHING

For the pouring spout: hold two fingers
on the outside of the wall and pull one
wet finger through from the inside
