Pottery Basics 101


Eleisa Martin


Are you new to pottery?

Do you know someone who is just starting to throw?

Did you just buy a wheel and need a great place to begin?

Are you taking a pottery class and want to get a good head start?

Have you thrown on the potter's wheel before but never mastered centering?

Well, this video is the "Best Learning Tool For The Beginning Potter"

Here's what makes this video so unique:


You will not only have the instructor show you step-by-step how to use the potter's wheel, you will watch other students as they learn to throw.

Watching other students learn will help you see what types of problems you may run into. You will see some of the mistakes they make and you will learn how to correct these mistakes.

You can not learn to throw or continue to grow as a potter unless you have masted the fundementals of throwing.

Many people I have taught to throw on the potter's wheel have said to me, "I tried to learn to center in school, but I just couldn't do it."

Well, I say . . . Yes you can!!!

The techniques you will learn in this video have helped many students learn to master centering. You will see several angles including great overhead shots.

You are encouraged to Practice . . . Practice . . . Practice before moving on to the next section of the video . . .

Opening out and Pulling up the walls

This video encourages you to throw cylynders.

In this section you will learn a special way to place your hands on the clay so that you can maintain a centered pot. You will learn how to pull up the walls of your pot and throw a great cylnder before moving on to the next section . . .


Once you have learned the special techniques in the previeous sections, you will have no problem at all shaping your piece.


In part 2 you learn the two main ways of wedging your clay.

You will see the complete throwing process of throwing from start to finish - from two different views.

Next, you will have a chance to put what you have learned into action by learning to throw and apply some simple designs to a few pieces.


I have included a special section at the end of the video on "How to teach children to throw on the potter's wheel"
