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.
    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.

    A pleasure to watch. It seems most presenters are trying to be loud and abrasive, over pronouncing words and generally overacting.

    Hi Ronald, I just wanted to mention something about the shape of the clay particles. When I learned my trade as a potter, clay particles were described to me as plate like particles, contrary to your oblong description. I found your statement to be very interesting. The theory behind the plate-like particle description was as if someone took a deck of playing cards and got them wet. The water creates a bond between the cards and sticks them together but they're still lubricated enough to be shifted around but remain bonded. God I miss my trade! Cheers brother
