I am the husband of Cindy Clarke, a lifelong potter. Together we have operated out of the Fire Studio in Alberta Canada for the past 10 years. We have sold wholesale, retail, tried our hands at running a gallery, but always centred (no pun intended)on pottery. These days when I'm not helping Cindy in the studio I am usually in front of the computer working on websites and video.

Really impressed by the quality of this video and the step-by-step instructions. It definitely helped me solve my problem of under-wedging! My clay objects kept warping as they dried :( This is the best advice I can give anyone who's having trouble throwing their vases: wedge, wedge, and when you think you've done enough, wedge some more!
