While Gary Rith is busy making his tiny pitchers, I've tried some more big ones. But I am still finding after they are off the wheel they are too bottom heavy. Yep, my opinion and it leads me to carving away in attempts to lighten the load. But shape is done pretty much, so I need to figure out how to really pull that extra weight of clay off the bottom walls before finishing throwing. The one thing I learned and never do, is to let the pot set up a bit after it's pretty much finished, then after that drying off time, pull more clay up. I've seen that that does extend the walls easily.
So back to the drawing board, er, potters wheel, for this "hobbiest" potter.
