Thanks Teiste! I know that it must be a lot of work to use a potters wheel but it looks so relaxing and fun.

If it were that easy, we would all be doing it. The lady is an artist.

Thanks Teiste for posting this from her site.

That's true Johnny. It only looks easy because she is so skilled. It still looks like a lot of fun though.

That was my thought as I watched this video.

Julie clearly has mastered her craft. I'm reminded of all the times when we learn from a master and our first impression is 'that's easy'. I also like how the video was produced, it's a great marketing piece as it captures the pace and flow of her craft.

I think I"ll have to add a DB scuttle to my shave wish list.

Interestingly, I've always thought of a scuttle as being a luxury. In the summer months, I think it's not particularly useful and in the winter months, I think that it would be nice thing to have.

Robert, it's a nice thing to have and to use all year long. Even on those hot summer months.

On those hot days, I leave the hot water in the scuttle to the last minute, and just before I start to make my lather, I pour the water out and just let the warmth of the clay keep the lather warm.

Makes for a very nice shave.

I really don't need a scuttle, since I generally use MWF with warm rather than hot water for lathering. However, watching this video I have an appreciation of a beautiful piece of art.

The wife says it's fun, but relaxing isn't quite the right word. Keeping a 5-20lb pile of spinning clay where you want it while you drag parts of it into shape is way more work than it looks like in Ghost. Smile

I remember Mrs. Wind being sore from her hands to her shoulders the first few months she was learning.

Oh, and there's a hand thrown scuttle listed for sale in the BST forum. You know, if you were interested. *cough*

Is there somewhere on the order form to specify what music is played while your scuttle is being made? Tongue
