Making a Stoneware Teapot
Où se trouve: Le Potier Pothier
Ronald Pothier is a master potter having started all the way back in 1973 at only the age 13! Today, he works out of his studio in Hemmingford, Quebec where he produces beautiful ceramic pieces of art. Bowls, plates, cups, vases, teapots and more, they are strong and practical for everyday use in your kitchen.
Watch as Ronald throws two different teapot designs with such confidence and ease. He makes it look easy but throwing clay on a wheel is quite the workout while also requiring a fine level of finesse. Later on, Ronald explains how he fires, decorates and glazes his pottery and then we see the final result of all the hard work. It's a multistage process that takes several weeks to complete and decades of experience to perfect.
Ronald is a fantastic teacher and holds classes on Saturdays. Whether you're a beginner or experienced in throwing, you are welcome to sign up. Visit Ronald's website for more information.
