Michael Casson – The Craft of the Potter – Throwing

Michael Casson was one of the pioneers in the renaissance of studio pottery in the post-war period, a greatly respected and a charismatic teacher and educator who influenced several generations of potters. After reading Bernard Leach's 1940 A Potter's Book, Casson responded positively to its concept of unity and wholeness, and its advocacy of functional and individual wares. Together with his wife, Sheila, he sought to put Leach's ideas into practice. In this video he shows you the Two main shapes of throwing - outwards and inwards. (Please don't use asbestos in your studio though!)
