After only a year of launching, Periscope users have created over 200 million broadcasts.
And between the iOS and Android app, users are watching a combined total of 110 years of video —daily.
For those not familiar, Periscope is a live video streaming app that lets you watch live videos from users all over the world.
It’s become an amazing platform for artists to promote their work by live-streaming their creative process.
Marketing and creation: two birds with one stone!
It’s also a great resource for ceramic artists and hobbyists who want to learn from, and interact with, other artists. If the broadcaster enables it (and most do), you can chat with others who are watching the video and with the host themselves.
So, I am a total workshop addict. I love to see the process of other artists. If you’re the same way, Periscope is going to be your new jam.
Periscope is like a virtual ceramic workshop that you can attend from home.
While still in your PJs.
Periscope is free and available for iPhone or Andriod. You can watch Periscope in your browser, but to follow broadcasters, you need to download the app and log in with either a Twitter account or phone number.
I’d recommend dipping your toes into the water and checking out what other potters and artists are doing with this platform.
How to find pottery related live-streams
Searching for broadcasts only shows a few of the most recent ones. Your best bet for a steady stream of pottery demonstrations is to follow broadcasters.
