Most everyone I have talked to who has watched a pottery demonstration has told me that watching the clay transform and the potter at work is mesmerizing and can be very calming. I have been so focused on trying to put videos together for the purpose of instruction, I completely forgot how so many people just like to watch and if they learn anything, that is just icing on the cake. Because there are so many stressful things in our daily lives, I thought it might be nice to do a throwing demonstration with no voice-over or spoken instruction, just a simple demonstration with some soothing music. This video takes about 10 minutes - so sit back, relax, breath in - breath out, and meditate on the positive things in your life or simply zone out and enjoy the demo.

Thanks for tuning in and let me know if there is anything you would like to see me demonstrate or if you are having a problem with one of the throwing steps and would like a demo focusing on that step alone. You can leave a comment here or email us by clicking HERE.
Here is the piece thrown in the video after it has been altered and beaded. You can see the sketching that helps to put the beads in place.
Here's the video - it takes about 10 minutes. Sit back and relax!!
