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.

    Absolutely lovely art that one can use every day . I wonder how long liquid stays hot in an earthenware pot? And could you use it on top of a wood stove? A lidded jar on top of a stove all day to cook a stew, separated by pastry with spiced apples on top for dessert. Like a pre electricity slow cooker. Such a calm and hypnotic presentation to watch. I nearly nodded off. So I made tea. I'm usually wound tight and my brain is hard to shut down. Watching this made me like the clay. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful art.

    I’ve never worked with clay but since as long as I can remember have had an intense passion to do so! It seems so fun and interesting, I’m guessing this passion comes from the fact I’m an earth element

  • Amanda Shelton
    Amanda Shelton 20 days ago

    I have experience in pottery making. I found out I have a gift for it after taking a class in highschool. I also know how to sculpt clay. My biggest passion is for drawing. I have savant syndrome so my brain is hot wired to create what I see. I have difficulty doing abstract art because my skills are with realism. I love sculpting because I like surprising people with what I make. People are amazed because I never was taught or took a class too learn. I just know how to draw and sculpt. I wish everyone were more positive about their work. If you are motivated you will succeed. Just don't give up. Practice makes you better.
