hi, i'm new to the whole pottery game right now as i've only been throwing for a couple of months. i've got a couple pots right now that i was wondering if anybody would care to take a look at and see if i have any skill whatsoever or if i should just stick to somehting else.

Hi nick,

The pots look great..

Keep going!

One give away on pottery is the weight.. Pots should be thin but strong...

Hi (welcome) to the forum from me. I too do pottery, but I make mine using slipcasting rather than throwing. I keep saying I'll have a go, but never seem to have the time. Your pots look really nice ... well done. Look forward to chatting with you.

Holy crapola, I didn't expect people to actually like my work that much! I've only been throwing since about the end of March in my Ceramics class in school, so it's really nice to hear someone besides my teacher and my grandma likes my work haha.
Thanks to all who enjoyed them!

They look great!!
I did a bit of pot throwing when I was at college (quite a while ago) and was pretty good on the wheel although my stuff was a little heavy!!

I liked the raku glaze finish mainly because I enjoyed setting fire to sawdust hahahah!!;)
