For Christmas, I got my son Levi a wooden anvil and paddle for making large coiled pots. Today, while I was making some special order pots and loading a bisque kiln, he finished up a large pot that he started yesterday. I guess this means I'm going to have to give it a try as well. I actually ordered two anvils and paddles, one for me and one for him.
I'll share more pictures of the process when we get better at it. But from the looks of the pot below, Levi's getting the hang of it. He estimates he used about 50 or 60 pounds of Grogewemee 10 from STARworks Ceramics.
