There are many ways to throw pottery on the wheel. Different techniques to center, open, pull and trim. You do what works for you and what is comfortable.
A day after students' pottery dries to leather hard, TFP trims the bottoms "the foot" of the pottery.. then the pottery dries for another week or so before first firing.

During Covid 19, ELMS staff came together and absolutely rocked virtual teaching. Staff delivered work packets, laptops, reading materials, food and much more. Check out the pottery wheel videos.
One of my favorite steps in wheel-thrown pottery - - trimming the foot.
