making a wavy groovy twisty bowl: the movie!


(Gary Rith and 2 bowls)
You've been wondering how I do it: make grooves and twists on a bowl but it doesn't collapse? You're kinda pushing the wet clay, like walking on thin ice or skydiving...
anyway. You push it, and it looks cool. Check out the movie.

I like the idea of the wet clay being like walking on ice! Cool!

Groovy indeed. And love the cat pic on the masthead today.

"Controlled chaos" that is how I've always pictured you, Gary (it's a good thing!) Very clear video instruction - thanks for sharing how to make that groovy twisty bowl:)

That was a good one. I'm slowly letting down my perfection walls and abusing my clay a little more each time. Oh, btw, I also use the word 'crapola'... mine is usually like "Oh, crapola, my pot exploded". :)
