“Throwing” a bowl on the pottery wheel from start to finish. Part 2 here

Riddings Pottery, located in Derbyshire UK, is where John Rivers makes his own clay from a local coal seam, and then handmakes goblets, bowls, mugs, vases and other pieces that he hopes to have long lives of use. The co-curator was fascinated with this video, as well as the one about John making goblets.

Carly and Martin, community artists who make films, have made more videos about Riddings Pottery; this one is a good introduction.
