Integrated Described video (IDV) Example: “Show Me Your Art”


Hi I’m Kelly Wray
with Show Me Your Art. Twitter @kellyart,
#showmeyourart. Today, I’m getting
pottery trained, let’s go. Wow, what a cute studio. Looks like a mix between a
showroom and an actual studio where the pottery happens. This must be the artwork
of the potter I’m meeting, Paul Stewart. Paul? Hello. KELLY WRAY: Oh, hey! PAUL STEWART: Hey, hi! Welcome, welcome. Thank you. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you too. Then once you get
your apron here, we’re going to get
over at the wheel. Here we go. I’m going to show you
first how to make a pot. I’m going to take my piece
of clay in my hand here. I’m going to bang that on
that wheel really well. So, let’s get the
wheel turned on there. The first thing
I’m going to do is I’m going to pull
with my right hand and push with my left hand. And I’m crushing the clay,
and it comes right up to the middle of my hands. You can see how it’s
formed a cone there. Yes. Then I tip it over
and I’m pushing it down in the bottom of my right hand. And the clay now is
going to stop wobbling. Then you take your index finger. Lay it flat across the top. And you’re going to start
pressing with that fingertip, and your finger is
going to flow down into the middle of the clay. Very cool. You start pulling hard
with that fingertip. So you see, the clay is coming
out now, it’s getting wider. That is really cool. It’s actually kind of
looking like a doughnut. And it’s time to start
thinning the walls out. So here we go. I’ve got my thumb
on the outside, with the index
finger on the inside. So I’m going to start
lifting my hand up. And that’s going to thin it out. And it’s going to draw
those up into a wall. It’s really starting to take
shape of almost like a mug without a handle. PAUL STEWART: And it’s done. Wow. Now it’s your turn. Let’s switch places. Here is your piece of clay
and I want to bang it on that. See the pad of clay
on the wheel there? Go ahead. There it is. There’s a pedal, it
looks like a car’s gas pedal, just to the right of the
wheel there, down on the floor. OK, here we go. Full speed, here we go. Good, make a cup
out of your hands with one hand over the
other, and push right down on the clay. KELLY WRAY: Wow,
feels really cool. So you see the ball of clay
is in the middle of your hands. KELLY WRAY: Yeah. PAUL STEWART: I want you
to push with your left hand and pull with the right hand. OK. PAUL STEWART:
You’ve centered it. So now your piece of
clay is not wobbling. Looks like a
little cake almost. PAUL STEWART: Your fingertip
goes right in the middle. Right in the
middle, just making a hole right in the middle. PAUL STEWART: Now
I want you to start pulling with your fingertip. Pull towards you. There you go. KELLY WRAY: Oh, wow! PAUL STEWART: That’s far enough. It’s got a much bigger
hole now in the middle. I would say about an inch
and a half, two inches. PAUL STEWART: You’re going
to put your index finger on the inside of the pot. This is the pinching part. This is the pinching part. And you need to use your
thumb on the other side, as you have it there. Now, I want you to come
up slowly and steadily. And that’s going to thin
it out and it’s going to draw those up into a wall. Now, take your hands away. OK. And you know what? You did a fantastic job! It looks like a mug. KELLY WRAY: It does actually. Paul, thank you so much
for showing me your art. And for you at home, if you
want to know more about pottery, you should totally check out
Paul’s web site, thepottery.ca. I’m going to finish my mug here.
