The Kid Should See This

Throwing a simple pottery salt pot on the wheel

From Ingleton Pottery, watch this quick and simple demonstration of how a pottery salt cellar or pot can be created on a potter’s wheel. The piece consists of a closed round vase shape that’s given a large side hole for accessing the salt. It can also be used as a garlic storage pot or a bird feeder.
