Since y'all liked the last vid so much I figured I'd show you how I did it. After throwing a cylinder I carefully thinned out the middle and then used a torch to dry the top and bottom sections to stiffen them up. Then I made some indents with a rib and used the friction from holding the top to collapse it on itself. This one isn't as clean as the last one but I'm still figuring it out (: . . . #GeorgeOhr

Flaming good throw! Ok, I love to torch pots, you will have seen this at the end of the video, where I torch the pot in order to quickly dry it and stop it changing shape and flopping (unlike my last video where I did not have this wonderful flame thrower handy! Check that post out too, it was a flop!) If only my phone had not run out of ‘space’ and stopped recording, you would have seen a lot more flame throwing at the end of this one. Throwing porcelain can be tricky, especially when you throw it thin like I tend to do, I see that as part of the challenge, but lose so many pots with my wanting to do that final pull or final tweak. I push it too far and then it tends to collapse; but with the addition of the flame, it seems that it can withstand my demands and happily keep its form. This particular shape is one that I have had trouble with over my many years of being a potter. It seems this rounded shape, with the open top, warps in the kiln during the glaze firing (yes, they are a bit thin.) Let’s see how this one turns out…. stay tuned! Enjoying sharing a successful “Protea Pot” mission today. . . . #makersgonnamake #bespoke #creative #checkthisout #potteryvideos #potteryvideo #australianceramics #happypotter #instapottery #claystagram #potterylove #potterylife #throwlikeagirl #pottersofinstagram #contemporaryceramics #ceramicvessels #ceramica #arteceramico #createmakeshare #wheelthrown #wheelthrowing #potteryvideo #satisfyingvideo #oddlysatisfying #satisfyingvideos #potteryvideos #potteryvideo #happypotter #notaflamethrower #flamethrower

Making some bowls from a kilogram of porcelain, these will shrink down to about 8 inches diameter and 3.5 inches high. Once they dry a bit I’ll coat them in porcelain slip and drip dendrites down the inside, like in the photo that shows a bowl from the last batch of these bowls I made. Should I take a video of it, or have a made too many dendritic slip videos already?

I was invited by @australianceramics to write an article for the current issue of The Journal of Australian Ceramics; EXPLORING SURFACE ✨ I discuss my process of experimentation with glaze and raw materials, and how this process informs the conceptual aspects of my exhibition work. I focus on the two raw materials I work with most and their applications - Rutile and Copper. Its a bit dry and technical (I’m not a writer), but covers a lot of the questions I am asked most frequently... so if that’s you and I’ve not responded (sorry), I suggest you grab a copy! And check out all the other wonderful articles within ❤️👌🏼😍 Thanks again @vickigrima and @australianceramics Photos by the wonderful Victor Marillanca ✨❤️ @vmarillanca

Four swirly mugs to start off this semester, and no fails 😮 this is a first for me 😂. Hopefully this video will get me to 1k followers (wowee amirite) at which point I'll make another post regarding the giveaway! I don't know if I'll just be doing one or a few items, but I guess it depends on how many people jump in. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ceramics #ceramicart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #instapottery #potteryheart #wheelthrowing #wheelthrown #clay #potteryvideos #art #handmade #funky #homemade #makersgonnamake #potteryforall #lagunaclay #satisfying #oddlysatisfying #crafts #madeinaskutt #swirl #swirls #mug #mugshot #1kfollowers #fail #studio @ifyouhigh @potterymakinginfo @pottery_videos @insta_pottery @pottery__lover @pdblais @potteryfixation

It’s always good to change things up every once in a while in one’s art practice. Here’s me playing with throwing at a faster pace than I typically do! Throwing fast, though not always recommended, can help you realize what are the bare necessities to complete a piece of pottery. It doesn’t require as much water or amount of steps as you might think 🤔

masters_jackie. Trimming of the Tree – well the Protea flower tree pot that is!  As yo

Trimming of the Tree – well the Protea flower tree pot that is! As you may know, I have been attempting to capture the lovely yellow Protea flower, in a pot, and after a few throws, not all successful (see previous posts if you are interested!) now it is time for the trimming. It is at this stage in the pottery process that you get to ‘get rid of’ or ‘trim off’ the excess clay and create the overall final shape of the pot. It is time consuming, but really is just as important as the throwing stage, as you get to finish it off and see its bare bones. No matter what you are making, trimming is an integral part of the final result. As a potter, you need to get to comfortable with this element, to master it and to understand that shaving away the excess clay, effects the overall look of the pot so very much. This is your one chance to make a pot ‘lighter’, to give it a foot on which to sit and to refine the shape and to give it true beauty. I love this particular one as I created wavy lines in the base area, in the hope that this will capture the glaze and add an extra layer of texture. So I am sharing some ‘wavy line trimming love’ today and wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a very wonderful day sharing happiness with those around you. . . . #creative #checkthisout #potteryvideos #potteryvideo #australianceramics #happypotter #instapottery #claystagram #potterylove #potterylife #throwlikeagirl #pottersofinstagram #contemporaryceramics #ceramicvessels #ceramica #arteceramico #createmakeshare #wheelthrown #wheelthrowing #potteryvideo #satisfyingvideo #oddlysatisfying #satisfyingvideos #potteryvideos #potteryvideo #happypotter #protea #shareyourprocess #howitsmade #processvideos

Weekend work. I finally managed to make time for some pottery work. These are a combo of wheel work and hand building, as I haven’t got much time to get on the wheel, my wheel throwing skills leave a lot to be desired... one day... #pottery #pottery #handmade #handmadepottery #wheelthrowing #pinchpots #workinprogress #clay #recycled #recycledclay #ceramic #ceramicsmagazine #happysunday

I hate that I don't have a hobby. I'm just so good at losing interest/getting lazy/developing a new interest towards something new that I never got to follow through and progress (well the lack of innate talent is also to blame). Anyway, this right here is one of those musings that's been halted. To be fair (to myself), I would love to continue learning pottery if it's not so dang expensive. But I loved the experience. I don't think I can ever be good, but just the idea of creating something out of a dollop of mud feels rewarding. Being on the wheel also helped me clear out my thoughts (sort of like a meditative activity) and just focus on the present. So do I consider this yet another failed project? In terms of quality and improving myself, perhaps, but if it's about the learning and experience, then I'd say it's a win. #pottery #clay #wheelthrowing #ceramics #start (not shown: the uglies and the failed attempts that are too embarrassing to take a picture of)

Today I tested some stains in some porcelain clay. This is one of my first times throwing with porcelain so it was quite an experience! I look forward to seeing the end results! #pottery #potterywheel #clay #handmadeceramics #wheelthrowing #wheelthrown #clay #claycreations #ceramics #porcelain #ceramicart #mugs

alarasati. How is your Sunday going so far? Sunday is the only day at the studio

How is your Sunday going so far? Sunday is the only day at the studio that supposedly no one should be working, but I have to admit for me, it is hard to switch off especially when surrounded by work-in-progress pieces and though I’m aware that ceramics are one of many of things that works out only when timing is right but the agonizing wait-time that sometimes gets to me . I have been working on some red glazes and oxides for a while now and trying to find shades that I like through a couple of testing finally we’ve got a winner. Just one or two more firings then hopefully we are ready to reveal them . We’re feeling festive this month with Chinese New Year celebrations. For those whose been following our stories from what’s happening inside the studio, you know that we’ve got a limited gold lustre that will be incorporated into a limited pottery pieces coming out end of this month. We are super excited for what’s coming but nice to be reminded to trust the process and patience always wins . #pottery #handmade #wheelthrownpottery #wheelthrowing #plates #mugs #handmadetablewares #handmadeplates #smallbatch #stoneware #cone8 #ceramics #ceramicstudio #handmadepottery #igpotter #igpottery #makersgonnamake #studiolife #modernceramics #contemporaryceramics #moderndesign #locallymade #makersmovement #handmadevases #liveauthentic #shopsmall #ceramiclicious

This is the biggest commission I have ever done and It has been pretty busy these last few days throwing, trimming and making shelves for extra room but I must say I love it. I am really enjoying the experience and the knowledge that Alex Caminos passes down to a fellow Potter. Shout out to @rachonfire for letting us know the time because studio time flys by so fast!! #ceramics #pottery #clay #clayart #wheelthrowing #conefour #productionpottery #comission #trimmingpottery #caminostudio
