Dance on the circle: Wet clay patterns on a spinning potter’s wheel

Watch more with these video collections:

Wet clay on a spinning potter’s wheel transforms with every turn in this improvisational form of art. The video runs a bit long at 15m24s, but the kids still wanted to include it here thanks to the hypnotic patterns that made us want our own potter’s wheel.

In the archives: pottery, drawing images in sand, and mind-blowing Chladni Patterns.

Thanks, @LaniHarmon.
