About wheel throwing:

For some people, throwing clay on the potter's wheel can be addictive. It certainly was for me. Once I tried it, I could not stop and that was over 30 years ago. Basically, you put a lump of clay in the middle of a wheel head, start the wheel spinning and, once you get that clay “centered”, you turn it into something beautiful. “Centering” the clay is one of the most important steps in throwing pottery. If your clay is not centered when you begin to pull up the piece, it will be off balance, and you will fight the clay the whole time. If I am centered, then the clay centers and all goes smoothly. If I am not centered, it's a different story. It is a great metaphor for life.

Think of a glaze simply as a coating of glass which is fused to the surface of a clay piece during the kiln firing. It adds color, texture and strength to the piece. The glaze serves to waterproof the piece and to create an easily cleaned surface, as well as providing color and decoration. The color of a glaze after it has been fired may be significantly different from before firing. That's one of the things that makes the process so magical. You never know the final results until you open the kiln after a firing.
