How to Use a Chum to Trim Mugs from Top to Bottom

If you’ve ever wanted to trim a pot from the top to the bottom, but the lugs attaching the pot to the wheel got in the way, today’s post is for you! In this video clip, an excerpt from his video Perfecting Mugs & Bowls on the Wheel, Sam Scott demonstrates how to trim pottery with a chum.

This technique is great because you can really refine the entire surface of a piece without the hassle of those pesky clay lugs. And it can also speed up the process too!

This clip was excerpted from Perfecting Mugs & Bowls with Sam Scott, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Network Shop!
