Female: It doesn’t have to be clean, just completely clean.
Female: Or do you put water on it?
Female I put, I mean I can modify this sponge a bit and I just kind of—
Female: A bit and take off any dust and grain that might be on it, okay, and then here is the fun part. Well, wipe your hands a bit and you want to start by centering the ball of clay, okay? Which is probably the hardest thing to learn when you’re beginning. So what you do, you kind hold the ball in place till with both of your hands. So I’m getting this part stay and completely still whereas this is controlling the movement.
So, this is more or less indigenized so what I do is I start off with I guess this cylindrical block, okay? And we want to make a cup.

Female: I’m looking at you and I’m panicking.
Female: There’s no need to panic.
Female: We’ve got, Lee.
Female: So what I’ve done now, I’ve pierced the inside, I form it up a bit, I’m going to smooth the bottom a bit too.

Female: Pushing it.
Female: I’m going to push it up. Okay?
Female: And meanwhile with this hand, my hand that’s on the inside I’m going to push it off, push out the clay a bit.
