One of my favorite handmade texture tools that Amy Sanders demonstrates on the DVD we filmed this past summer is what I like to call her “rolly line tools.” In today’s video, an excerpt from that technique-packed DVD, Amy demonstrates how to make and use these tools. So Simple, so smart.
Ceramic artist Amy Sander’s work, which includes functional pottery as well as decorative wall pieces, has the appearance of soft quilted fabric although it is made of fired clay. Today, Amy shares her process for creating patchwork ceramic wall art.
In this comprehensive 4-disc DVD collection, Amy Sanders reveals how she took a background in quilting and fabrics to create a unique way to work with clay. Through a series of easy-to-follow demonstrations, Amy shows you how to make the tools you need to create richly textured handbuilt and thrown pieces that will change the way you work in clay.
Another cool way to make custom stamps is to attach coils to a lug of clay. In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Creative Forming with Custom Texture (which is now available as a download), Amy Sanders demonstrates this technique.
When most of us think of stenciling on pottery, we probably think of laying down a stencil and painting over it with an underglaze or a glaze. But since clay is malleable, we don’t have to stop there! In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Creative Forming with Custom Texture, Amy Sanders shares her technique of texture stenciling. What a fabulous idea!
Crossing over from quilting to ceramics provides great ideas.
