How to Make Pottery Bowls — From Start to Finish

Florian Gadsby

In this week's video I'm making a deep bowl from beginning to end. I'll begin with lumps of soft clay and I'll take you right through to the end, through glazing, firing and the final bit of sanding the base undergoes. Thanks so much for watching as always and if you have any further comments or questions please don't hesitate to ask.
