Trim a slapped and impressed tea bowl with Simon Leach

Even the best potters don't always get a perfectly finished vase, pot, or jar immediately after throwing. In fact, it's actually quite common for a potter to go back over his work and trim off or reshape the uneven parts to achieve a balanced finish. This is precisely what master potter Simon Leach does in this pottery video.

Using a variety of metal trimming tools, including a cheese grater, Leach shows you how to trim an impressed tea bowl. Trimming is the last and most important step in creating a beautiful pottery project, so make sure to pay attention!
