We're not going to lie to you: Creating pottery is a long, arduous, and intense process. But After you throw your charger, come back to reshape offset parts, fire the charger, and then glaze it, you have yourself a homemade work of art you will treasure for a lifetime. In other words, all the hard work you put into pottery is worth it!
If you're interested in the last step we mentioned - glazing - check out this tutorial by Simon Leach. Leach will teach you how to glaze many different forms of pottery, from lids to jugs to jars. Leach uses Japanese Shino glaze, for those who are wondering.
