Darine: Hi my name is Darine and welcome to watchmojo.com. Today we’re going to look at the basic steps of making pottery and to help us do that in her own special way is Lee from Studio Alexandra. So follow me as we explore this art form. Lee tell me a little bit about pottery. How can you define it?
Lee: Wow, it’s a big question. Pretty much pottery or ceramics because it is clay its like playing with clay. It’s taking a bowl of clay and makes it into something. It does take back to thousand of years back in China but you know you have the aspects of used day to have all sorts of people of generation and generation.
Darine: And how does it feel to be—let me ask you, is there a name like for you know painter, best paint so what’s your name for person with a spider and potter.
Lee: Yes it could be potter you know.
Darine: Oh, there you go.
Lee: Some people don’t like to use the term potter just because it has a lot of you know—
Darine: Like Harry Potter?
Lee: Yeah, very sad.
Darine: I don’t think that’s the origin and that’s fine.
Lee: Not quite, but you know since some people don’t like to be called potter because you know potter was big and the feminine people don’t want that kind of hippy connotations towards it. So some people like preferred to be called a ceramist as well. In terms of being a ceramist I find that you—it is definitely not a question of either you have it or you don’t. You definitely have to be good with her hands. He has to be organized that you want to ever become a ceramist. You know if you want it to do for a living but you know its hard work you know. You have to kind of to work really, really hard but at the same time if you love the medium you know. You’re going to make it happen.
Darine: So let’s make it happen people. So let’s dig inside, get out of the potterer and this ceramist, item and get this going.
