Ken is Making Pottery

Ken is in the studio making pots.  I like to sneak down with a camera and snap some photos.

 

 

 

 

He centers the clay

 

 

 

 

 

He pulls up the pot’s sides

 

 

 

 

 

He cleans the top with a chamois

 

 

 

 

 

He trims excess off the bottom

 

 

 

 

 

With a wire Ken cuts the pot from the bat

 

 

 

 

 

Finally he puts it with the others.  Later he will trim the bottom of each pot and then bisque, glaze and fire.  Lots of steps.  Ken makes it look easy.  It isn’t
