How to Throw a Large Vase

Video Workshop with Danny Meisinger

Hi, my name's Danny Meisinger, from Spinning Earth Pottery.
And in this workshop, I'm going to show you how to throw a large vase.

My main aim in this workshop is to teach you how you can throw large vases in sections, and make them beautifully defined.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • know how you can make a large sectional vase
  • know how I decide on proportions and curves.

This video workshop is 3 hours 3 minutes long, you will have lifetime access to it, and you will be able to download it to your device.

About Danny Meisinger

When I reflect on my many years of work as a studio potter, I realize my work has changed dramatically.
The way I think about my work has also changed.
My work as a potter, though extremely enjoyable is not the totality of who I am.
I do not sacrifice everything to its advancement and I never want to become so consumed by it that I cannot hold it in a healthy context.
I am first an individual striving to be more deeply human.
If someone asks me what I do for a living I reply I am a potter, but I am much more than that.
My work as a potter is very important.
What I mean by that is, art is important in the world.
Even more important than art are artists.
We think differently.
Art is the culmination of the creative mind.
Creativity is spirit-filled, and the more art there is in the world the more artists there will be, and the more spirit-filled the world becomes.
