In December of 2020, Glenn took a virtual workshop taught by master potter, Jose' Mariscal who is internationally known for his work in Crystalline Glazed Pottery. Jose' is a master at formulating and firing beautiful crystalline glazes but his throwing abilities and skill is second to none. I have been throwing since 1974 and have worked over the years to fine tune the throwing style I learned way back then at Northridge High School in Middlebury, Indiana and continued my work in clay at Indiana Central University (now known as The University of Indianapolis). This attached video is not really meant as an instructional video but a video to show you how learning new techniques can be like starting all over again - I found it embarrassingly difficult. The only similarities between his style and my current style of throwing was centering - everything else from there was so completely different. Sit back and get ready to watch how difficult it is for a new dog to learn a new trick.
