Ha, I thought he was going to cut them off one handed too, now that would have been impressive!

I am not impressed with gimmicks, throwing well with both hands is my goal.  I do love Simon Leach's videos just this left me cold.  My guess is that he could throw more quality pots with 2 hands.

You crazyman. I love it. You always make my day. I guess I have no excuse. If you can do two at one time, I should at least do one in half the time. LOL. You're the coolest. Thanks so much. Cheers to you in 2014. :)
