Beginner's Play

I have made some videos on throwing on the potter's wheel.  The videos are intended for beginners needing some guidance learning basic techniques.  The production is rough and ready, very amateurish, made at a pottery coop in Southern California, for members' use. No retakes, just shoot and be damned! A caveat: The videos are detailed; you might say they slog through the throwing processes at a snail's pace. Can't be helped; I forgot so many of the crucial details when I was learning. If you find yourself taking a snooze during a slow movement, you can review. Rewind, go forward.  I hope beginners will enjoy the journey.
