This tidy workshop in Denmark is home to Tortus Copenhagen, a ceramics studio founded by master potter Eric Landon. It's here that he creates pieces like what you see below.
You've undoubtedly seen the tools used to turn clay, and a potter's wheel, and the act of clay being turned:
But what you've probably never seen is the range of gestures a master potter wields to shape the clay. Landon has taken the trouble to have them photographed:
Also, I'm guessing the dude either has a gym membership, or shaping clay is a better workout than I'd expected:
We came across Landon on Colossal, which linked to a video he'd done a few years ago where he turned a piece and recorded it from the wheel's POV:
The video's awesome, but I think we can all agree that the pottery wheel POV video we'd really like to see would be from this vantage:

This was AMAZING! Beautiful. Why you ended it with that tacky picture from Ghost completely boggles my mind.
I feel like I just watched an episode of Naruto.
