Update: I'd hoped to someday serve as a moderator on this site.
Last Fall, the Mod team was looking to +1; I put my hat in the ring.
"Hulk" is I, happy to serve with a great team!
Awesome, a wealth of information about glazes, clays, what goes into them, and more! Mr. Hansen's take on specific gravity and thixotropy of glaze, essential reading...
Throwing, such a joy! Learn by doing, learn by watching; when you can't be there in person, there's the magic of "the internet" - enjoy!
The Ingleton Pottery gentlemen (Dan, and his father) make it look easy. They've posted a lot of clips...
Mr. Lin's attention to detail is inspiring...
Ton a day Isaac Button! Search around and find all four clips...
Michael Casson - find the other two clips as well. His book is very worthwhile, imo.
Genji Shimizu (artist name Hokujoh) - a lot to see here
NHK Ceramic Treasures series - some great stuff here
Clinton Pottery, production; watch carefully
Tim See has posted several instructional clips. Note his centering style.
Bill Van Gilder offers many useful pointers in his videos. I'm using three glaze formulas from his book.
Have been enjoying Florian's clips. Check out his advise on learning to tap center.

Thought provoking, indeed.
Anne Mette Hjortshøj "Paying Honest Attention" - beautiful film about Danish potter - YouTube
Just watched Shinobu Hashimoto's clip on preparing clay for throwing (October 2022).
I believe continuing on the wheel with the direction initiated on the wedging board makes a difference.
Have been doing this from early on, having noticed that centering seemed much easier about half the time...
This is the first I've seen of anyone else believing same.
