Then Dick Lehman demonstrates “Using the Pot-tery Wheel to Make Square Pots.” It sounds counterintuitive, but once it’s explained by this expert thrower, it will seem easy.Whether you’re interested in throwing complete pots on the wheel, like Dannon Rhudy’s citrus juicer; throwing textured parts for alteration and assem-bly, like Jake Allee’s stilted bucket, or if you’re simply interested in throwing larger pots right on the wheel, like Mark Issenberg’s tall vases, then wedgeup some good throwing clay, pull up your throwing stool, and get that pottery wheel spinning!Pottery wheel throwing techniques included in

Using Templates to Throwon the Pottery Wheel
by William Schran
hen my beginningwheel-throwing stu-dents have developedsucient acility withclay, they’re assigned the project o creating a set o our matching cups.Though I’ve demonstrated how tomeasure their orms using calipersand other devices, I continue to ob-serve them experiencing diculties.In an eort to overcome this stum-bling block, I showed them a tech-nique successully used by studentsin a beginning handbuilding class.This technique involves usingtemplates to repeatedly create aneven, symmetrical orm. In the coil-building exercise, you position thetemplate next to the pot as coils areadded, making certain the pot con-orms to the prole o the template.The template is then used as a ribto scrape the surace as it's rotated,creating a smooth, uniorm surace.
Making a Template
Any number o objects can be em-ployed to design templates that havea variety o shapes. French and shipscurves, ound in drating or me-chanical drawing sets, are excellenttools or creating proles or wheel-thrown vessels. A variety o caliperscan be taken apart to create anynumber curved orms. Lids o vari-ous sizes can be combined to createa mixture o curves. This process canalso be used to produce templateswith more complicated and com-pound proles with relative ease.
