http://www.ayumihorie.com Dry throwing involves no water and I've used it for the last 15 years to make handmade bowls, dishes, plates- all low forms. At Alfred as an undergrad, I developed this dry throwing process in which I trim to center using a pin tool, scoop out the inside using a loop tool and thin out the walls by pushing them out with a rib. I use no water because I like the surface of moist clay, rather than wet. This method allows me to preserve the inherent textures in clay that I love- the stretching, cracking, and sagging. Fingerprints have a different kind of crispness and I can coax out a delicate edge of a line on a massive wall. Using this method, I can also work more spontaneously and intuitively because I dont have to wait for the clay to dry out quite so long. Many thanks to Lullatone and Joe Lutton for music and production!
