How to Throw a Bowl on the Potters Wheel
Would you like to learn how to Throw a Bowl on the Potter's Wheel? Are you currently looking to learn new ceramic skills or would you like to recap on the skills you already have?
A bowl has so many functions. It can be used as tableware as a breakfast bowl, soup bowl, for source, for snacks, for salads, rice, and noodles.
Not only that, I found learning how to create a bowl helped me to learn how to throw the clay wall outwards to create other rounded shapes such as mugs and spheres. Leaning this helped me to transition this skill into creating some of the ceramic sculptures I create.
It also requires less processes to finish compared to a mug for example.
