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.

Next: From the potter’s wheel at Tortus Copenhagen, Made by the Sea – Pottery from beach-harvested clay, and Experimental animation meets pottery – A zoetrope bowl.

Bonus fave: Kintsugi & kintsukuroi – The art of pottery mending with gold.
