You Tube Pottery Demonstrations

I'm planning on getting on the pottery wheel today and in order not to get stuck in a rut oftentimes I'll browse You Tube for pottery demonstrations and find techniques that I've never tried before. These are two techniques that I found fun and interesting. I don't know what the end result will be. Perhaps I will have a bit of something to show for it, or perhaps I'll just have a bunch of wet clay to reclaim. In the end it doesn't matter because it's all about learning something new. I actually do have a blow torch in order to do the pattern technique. I have one that I use when I do glass beads and I also have a wire to do the faceting.
