I just came across this video yesterday. It is fantastic. It is also a very strange coincidence that my very first hand carved chawan was done the same way as in this video. Furthermore I went on to make my own trimming tools and made them the same way as seen in the video. This is like 5 years ago. Anyway, here is the line to the video "How To Make A Chawan."
Took my first clay classes at Bemidji State University in 1989. In 2002, after a long break, I started more pottery classes at Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI.
I do not have one area of interest, but that isn't to say I am unfocused. I enjoy making everything from coffee mugs to trompe l' oeil. I work with highfire stoneware, and low fire earthenware. I'm just clay crazy.
