Adam Savage Asks: (Mis)Adventures in Pottery

In what was SUPPOSED to be a One Day Build, Adam attempts to use his pottery wheel to make an aesthetically pleasing vessel out of clay, and … well, it does not go well. Tested members, can you help him? Post your suggestions in the comments below, and Adam will try out your advice next time!

  1. From what I see, your hands are in the wrong position. Right hand pushing in from the side with heel of palm. Left hand with side of hand pushing straight down on top of clay. Start with smaller ball of clay. Wet with natural sponge. 👍

  2. Ok, as I watch more you are trying to walk before you crawl. First step is getting it centered. Spend a day getting it centered then tomorrow work on moving the clay while keeping it centered.

  3. Well done. Do mind the centrifugal force. Don’t fight fysics. This is exiting in a “you try so I don’t have to” kind of way.
