Making a Stoneware Teapot | Throwing, Glazing & Firing | Où se trouve: Le Potier Pothier

  • Published on Jun 18, 2016
  • How teapots are made on a throwing wheel. Pottery made from Stoneware clay - get a teapot on ETSY:
    Ronald Pothier is a potter from Quebec. Watch as he transforms a hunk of clay into a finished teapot.
    Ronald Pothier is a 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. If you're ever passing through Hemmingford and want to stop by, you can see his opening hours on his Facebook page.

    I always love how people like this guy make a big deal about what they're doing and why they're doing it and explain everything and a bunch of other things that have nothing to do with it and a guy in a third world country does it without the tools and it comes out perfect the thing I wonder is why didn't this guy go to a third world country and learn the traditional way from hundreds of years he is good but I think he would be better

    You are THE master of making handles good sir!! Making handles for mugs and pitchers during my summer semester of college in ceramics class was very challenging for me to create. We used the same method to make them!^~^ It was very heartwarming to watch your video and relate to making pottery once upon a time.🤧💞I miss it!!

    At school I’m in a pottery class, I know our final project at the end of the year is a teapot, I don’t think I’ll be able to do as well as THIS but this certainly gives me some reassurance. I really do need to work on my plate though but it’s very difficult😂

  • My Cat's Breath Smells Like Cat Food

    Artists always amaze me. I do not have the patience to learn to be skilled like this - but watching someone else create things out of nothing always amazes me. This makes me want to find someone who makes this sort of stuff around me to support them and have their stuff in my cupboard. It's beautiful.
