Peter the potter

potter

Throwing a pot on a wheel is like drawing or painting in three dimensions, and it takes a great deal of skill and practice to do well.  When I put a handle on a mug or a teapot, I am dealing with line and negative spaces, just like I would when drawing.  The natural throwing marks that the fingers leave behind on a pot, are like an artist’s brush strokes.
