I mean, everyone’s is, but mine is kind of weird interesting
Today I solved a rubix cube for the first time and all I can think about is how when I went to Venice as a young child, my only memory is hurting my finger in between the dock and a boat. Why did I post this? I don’t know, you tell me

2022.01.23 03:08 Potterzee Tips from a defunct production potter! Since I haven't thrown or taught in years... I'd like to offer some pottery "hacks", so to speak. I don't want my knowledge and experience ending up wasted. These tips can potentially take you to the next level. Forgive me tho, it's a long post.
Tip #1. Let's start from the get-go. Clay consistency. I've seen many potters struggle to make consistent (centered) pieces. The trick is to start with freshly pugged or wedged clay. Immediately wrap your clay in plastic, and use within 24 hours. Using old bagged clay from a box without REALLY working it, is asking for problems. The moisture you see on the inside of the bag, use to be in the clay. But it migrated it's way to the surface and you end up having horrible clay to throw with! Also, clay balls left out for more than a few minutes, can form a dry skin. You have slightly more resistance with this dry "skin" than you do with the inside of the slug/ball. This then translates into the piece, causing a wobble, or uneven rim. You may blame yourself and think that you can't center... but it's probably not your throwing skills. Just soft and hard spots. Unless you're making a bottleneck, you shouldn't have to use a needle tool to even the rim/lip. Pug mills are expensive, so you can make your clay consistent by cutting the slug multiple times while wedging and slapping the cut pieces together. You can make a plaster wedging table and add a wire placed in the middle of the table going up to an arm in the back, so the wire is at approximately a 45° angle. With each of your arms on a different side of the wire, you place th clay in the center of the table. Wedge a bit, lift it up and down cutting with the wire, slap the pieces together, and repeat. It takes a lot of practice and effort, but really... it's necessary! You can use this to recycle slip as well. Just spread on the table for a couple hours, roll it up and wedge/cut. It also works well if you have a hard bag of clay and a real soft bag. Blend together to make a happy medium!
Tip #2. Circular slugs at 4" diameter (pugged or extruded) are VERY handy for consistent weight/pieces. Approximately 1 inch of length is equal to 1 pound. No need to weigh your slugs with this method. Speaking of extruders... they are a great way to make handles. Find or make custom dies. Extrude some strips and lay them out on a plastic sheet and cut them to the length you need. If doing matching mugs or creamers, it makes production 10 times faster and easier. Use freshly extruded handles on pieces that are "plastic"... which is between leather hard and wet. Little rub of a sponge, press the top part of your handle into the piece angled up, smooth it into the piece, and bring the bottom down to the lower part of your piece. Press into the piece and viola. Perfect handle without pulling one, using slip, scoring, etc.
Tip #3. I recommend that you make yourself a damp room. This can be a closet, a "grow" tent, a room, or a 2×4 framed box... covered in plastic sheeting. Cement floors work well for just throwing some water down... or you can use some buckets.. or a humidifier pointed away from your work. You're essentially making something like a greenhouse or terrarium. High humidity is what you're going for. Put your thrown pieces in there for a night or two... and they firm up enough to do whatever you need to do (trim, handles, carving, etc.). Place thrown pots in the damp room within a half hour or so of making them. When you go to finish your work, only take out a few pieces at a time. If you're doing handles or whatever, put the finished pieces back in for another night to set up. You could even leave them for longer. Most cracks occur from fast drying. You almost want to cure the pot... if that makes sense.
Tip #4. Use boards. At the production pottery I worked for, we basically had peg boards with metal pipes. We had 4×4 or 6×6 vertical beams with 1 inch holes drilled in every 6 inches or so. Then pipes to stick in the holes to hold boards. We had carts like that, damp rooms like that, and drying rooms set up that way too. Pretty much adjustable shelves. But you can lift from the center of the board, instead of sliding it off of the table... Our boards were probably 4-5 feet long, and maybe 8 inched wide. We'd load up a board with pots.. take it to the damp room, and start a new board. We'd reverse that for finishing.
Tip #5. Making matching pieces. Pretty straight forward and easy. A wooden dowel sharpened to a point, stuck in a ball of clay positioned at 2 o'clock (for a right handed thrower). Measure your desired height and width, and crank that shit out! Step back to look at your profile. Some people use a mirror. I would measure the piece by sections when I first started out. The foot is (this) wide. The widest part of the belly is (x) inches off the wheel and I used calipers to check the diameter. But after a while, it's like drawing almost. You can just look at a pot, and draw another (if that makes sense).
Other miscellaneous tips and tricks:
Glue foam to a large bat. Goodbye Giffen grips, tacking with clay, or having your beloved pieces fly off the wheelhead! Works great with wide bowls, plates, etc. Just turn them upside-down on the foam bat, trim, put another bat on the foot, and flip the two bats. Pretty easy actually. Best part, you don't have dents from weird pads, or clay stuck to your rim from tacking. Your rim stays sharp too. Not dented or dulled by the wheel head.
Throw yourself some chucks and bisque fire them. Those you can tack down! Perfect for bottles, lamps, etc. Just throw a cylinder without a bottom, round the top lip, and curve in the belly... like a nuclear cooling tower. Great for bottles, jars, vases, etc.
Keep some extra foam handy. If you make a spout on a creamer or pitcher, with a handle... you can put a piece of foam under the lip near the handle (opposite of the spout) for trimming/finishing the foot. This will make the bottom level, and you can then center it. If need be, tack the spout. It doesn't really work for a trimming a foot, but if you're just smoothing the rough bottom/bevel it's perfect! You can run your finger in the middle of the bottom if you. Or just push it in slightly, to mimic a foot.
Do your forearms ever hurt from leaning on the splash pan too long? Buy some foam pipe insulators, or a pool noodles. Make a slit going along the length of the foam. Drill a few small holes in your splash pan.. and zip tie the foam around the rim of your splash pan. Great trick!
Learn to lift small to medium sized pieces with your hands. Practice! Use a rib or tool to undercut a bevel at the base of your piece. Use a sponge, rib, or flexible rib, to remove excess slip/water on your piece. Rinse your hands in your bucket and have a dry towel next to you. DRY your hands! Take your wire tool, lay it down taut against the wheel head in front of you... then slide the wire through going AWAY from you (front to back). Most people cut back to front, and don't wipe their hands. Which makes it hard to lift pieces. Cutting away from you and having dry hands will make lifting your pots easy peasy. Gently wrap your hands around the piece, almost as if you are supporting a new born baby's head. You're not really grabbing the piece with your hands... instead, it's almost like you are getting the pot to stick to you. You'll feel it! Gently pull up and towards you. Should come right off! If it's a little deformed or squashed, leave it alone and fix it when it firms a tad.
Bats. We had crude circular wooden bats for large pieces. We would throw an inch thick, wide, flat, disk. Almost like a plate without a rim. We would then put groves in it with our fingers... almost like a target or something. Hard to explain. We would then drag our finger from the center ring through to the outside. Like cutting a quarter piece size of pie. We'd wet the top, put the wooden bat down, center the bat, and hammer it down slightly with a mallet. When we were done, we'd slip our rib under the bat and pry it up.
Throwing tip to get height. It took me a while to get this. It was the pinnacle technique... my learning curve. Collaring/choking. We would throw a wide cylinder with a couple pulls, then collar from the bottom up. We used a 6 point choke. Basically make half moons or "C" with your thumbs and index fingers. Then with your other 3 fingers, make a fist. You will have 6 points of contact. Thumbs at 5 & 7 o'clock. Middle finger knuckles at 3 & 9 o'clock. And index fingers at 11 and 1. It's very hard to describe! I wish I had a place to demonstrate. We would gather some clay from the bottom (palm down), then rotate our wrists upwards/inwards a quarter turn (palms facing piece). The whole top will want to tumble over. It took me at least 100 tries to master this next move. You sort of have to re-center the piece as you lift this wobbling top. I use to laugh at my head/master potter when he did this (before I learned what he was doing). His whole head and body would start moving with the wobble! Lol. What he was doing, was watching the part of the pot that was bulging out from the center. As it came back around with each turn of the wheel, he would push in at that spot. It was amazing to see (and learn)! He would turn a 5 pound, 12 inch cylinder into a 20 inch piece. Then, stick almost his whole arm down in, and use a rib to shape the pot. I must've tried for a whole straight 40 hour work week to get this down. It seemed like as hard as I tried, I couldn't throw anything higher than 14 - 16 inches. That was my max. What really amazed me... remember how I said that if you use consistent clay, you won't have a wobble or need to cut the top? Despite the top of the piece flopping around on the brink of collapse... once you reined in that wobble, the whole piece would correct itself.
Well. I'm sure there's more that I could share, but it's not coming to mind. Anyone looking to advance their skills, feel free to DM me. My old head/master potter I believe still works at the place I worked for. He's oddly private about the company name, but I think he put out a few YouTube videos showing him working. He is a TRUE master, and I have the utmost respect for him and his privacy. If you want to see some of my old work from the pottery/factory... I will show you privately. And possibly provide links to my head potter's channel if you promise not to comment about me or this post.
Furthermore... There are lots of different techniques out there. These tips and tricks are just suggestions and experience I personally had. I don't want this knowledge to go to waste. My hope is that by reading this, I can help some of you become a better potter. Perhaps more efficient, or consistent. There are plenty of amazing artists out there who create beautiful pieces, but can't make a simple set of matching mugs. And that's fine, cause they are ceramic artists... This post is more for the "blue collar" working potter's out there who might be struggling to fill orders, wants to bump up their production, or is having issues. With some of these these methods, it's possible to crank out 100-200 small pieces per 8 hour day. Our pottery made the most off of medium to large hand thrown lamps. Sold for $200-$400 a piece. I would do 40-50 per day, and my head potter could do 80-100. That's a LOT of money! There's potential for real profit.

I was playing a solo game and used Double Dragons' effect, but it only let me send a card from my field for the cost, it didn't let me send a bird call from hand. Is this a bug or am I missing something?
