Is This Pot "Thrown"?

Couldn't resist adding a comment to a recent discusson about "real" throwing techniques vs lathe methods.
Often, when those who do pottery are really critical of another's methods, i check out the source. Not to form an opinion on the validity of another's method, but just to see what all the fuss is about.
And too, when there are those who are so critical of someone else's creative techniques, i figure the "perpetrator" is an extremely inventive person, often engaged in lateral thinking, who is developing new and unique methods full of originality. If that's the case, i want to learn what they have to offer.
Check out the Ceramic Arts Daily article featuring Ayumi Horie's dry throwing method, and see for yourself what all the hoopla's about:

Then, let me know what you think . . . .

I love Ayumi's work! I say whatever works is best and it varies by artist.

Mornin' Cynthia !!!
Yes. I agree. When i visited the link, was tickled to see another way of doing things. Thought her technique was unique and clever.

it's cool how she does it. if you consider how many different ways that people throw with water when left to their own devices, it's not all that unusual that someone would come up with something this unique... but it is wild to watch her.

Yes !!!
Watched her video several times, trying to memorize her procedure. It's entirely new to me but makes a lot of sense.
Have you tried it yet?

Hi Jesse
Say. I really like the light installation you've created !!! It's super neat. The one titled: For Whom the Bells Glow.
Really cool !!!
