wheel lesson

Craft skills are often handed down from master to apprentice, as is the case of Juan Mañosa and his son. This vase collection comes from a single lesson of how to use the pottery wheel.
In order to hand turn a vase, one must know how to create a piece similar to an original vase.
The apprentice tries to achieve a result as akin as possible to the original, by repeating it as many times as necessary (normally, these trials are discarded and the material reused).
This vase collection shows all the vases made by the apprentice, attempting to replicate an original, from the initial trials up to the final result.
