Pottery

While at Gulf Coast Community College I built everything from a 2-1/2 foot tall hand-built coil pot, to wheel-thrown miniatures. This one is about 6-7 inches high and was glaze fired.

Kick Wheels:

I had a chance to throw on a kick wheel and I fell in love with it! I couldn’t believe how high I could pull the walls of a pot as the wheel slowed down in between kicks. And it was so relaxing (unlike an electric wheel). You sat and kicked a few times, then stood and worked with your clay as the wheel slowly lost its momentum. Then you sat again and kicked, repeating the process.
