Throwing AgateWare Yunomi

This is a short stop motion animation video the kids and I shot last weekend demonstrating the throwing of an "agateware" yunomi. This is a simple process of throwing two contrasting clays together to create a marvelously swirled effect directly in the clay body. I finally got around to pasting together a first draft to share....

I've just been using my "windows movie maker" to string together a few hundred still snaps that my kids take. I manipulate a folder of images at a time using photoshop's automate > batch function and actions palette to re-size and change contrasts/color/etc... it's not great, but it suits it's function.

Beautiful agateware yunomi and demonstration, thanks so much. I recently found some clay marbles I made five years ago with three different clays and couldn't remember how I made them, your demonstration has refreshed my memory.
