My passion for throwing pottery on the wheel started in High School. I was fortunate to have Bill Marinich as my art teacher at Jordan-Elbridge HS. He seemed to like to throw pottery as much as the students did.
Memories of High School Ceramics Class
Clay - I recall a big bucket of reclaimed clay that we had to wedge before we could use it. Very seldom were we allowed to use new out-of-the-bag clay.
Bats we made them out of plaster and then secured them to the wheel head with lumps of clay. How did we center anything?
Glazes were in several garbage buckets and had no idea what color we were dipping into. Check out some of my first pieces in the 80's.
