How to Make Pottery Bowls : Creating the Rim of Large Clay Pottery Bowls


So I just pulled up the edge, pulled up the
bowl, I shaped the bowl. I want to talk a little bit more about these edges I started
talking about how I was putting a curve here so that you can get your finger or hand while
you are serving underneath. But when I do that it roughens up the edge just a little
bit so I’m going to just run my finger along there and that is creating a soft edge. Then
I’m going to alter it a little bit again this is to show movement in the pot and it is also
to have a place to put your fingers. I’m just going to pull that down just a little and
just by doing that it loosens up that rim a little bit more so it is not so stiff looking.
Check to see that it is not way off you know that it throws it off at all, it is fine and
that allows me when I’m serving I put my thumb right there is just gives it a little bit
more of a nice feeling. We have to remember that pottery is not just about the way it
looks it is about the way that it feels. When you reach for that favorite mug everyday why
do you reach for it. You reach for it cause it feels good and pottery is definitely about
feeling not just seeing.
