I feel much more comfortable when throwing on the wheel now. Although I have two problems...
1. It is hard for me to throw larger pieces. I know that this will change over more time I spend throwing on the wheel so it's not too concerning.
2. When raising, my shape remains fairly steady, but I have a hard time at the bottom of the pot. The dish of the base is very thick and by the time I have completed the pot it is too late for me to make the bottom form thin and it's too thick to simple trim off.
I really like the wheel thrown forms above so will work on creating interesting textures and straigh bottoms with curved tops.
