Raku and Throwing on the Wheel

Great workshops today Raku glazing and throwing, looking forward to learning to use the raku kiln and playing around with reduction atmosphere techniques. Throwing was hard, I seemed to get the hang of wedging though. Centring was particularly difficult, it was taking some time to get it right; hopefully with practise I will improve. When pulling up the walls of the vessel I perhaps need to take more time but with fewer runs over. Also stopping while the goings good would be useful as i messed up all my pots today and did not produce a single decent one. Better luck next time. ImageImageImageImageImage
