We’ll use these pictures of throwing big pots as a test run on this new blog / news page, and hope that it all works.

Lifting a big pot off the wheel.

The first of the big pots being lifted off the wheel using our fork-lift trolley yesterday.

The trolley shown in the picture above has changed the way we make and handle our big pots.  and they no longer have to be lifted off the wheel manually and hefted around the studio to the kiln.  We’ll post more pictures of the trolley in use, and other studio activity as we become more familiar with using this blog page.

There is a video on YouTube showing David throwing a very big wine jar – a link to that video is on our Media page, look for YouTube, click here to watch it:
