In this installment of the Ceramic Arts Daily Video Series, Chandra DeBuse shares her techniques for constructing and decorating playful pottery. Using molds and templates made from bisqued clay, wood, and craft foam, Chandra demonstrates three unique forms based on sketched shapes: a scoop, nesting dishes, and a thrown and altered yunomi. Chandra shows how to take advantage of the clay’s malleability, contrasting pillowy volume with the beautiful lines created by the molds and templates. She also shares her surfacing and glazing techniques for creating colorful, illustrated pieces, demonstrating inlaid lines with underglaze, as well as sgraffito and brushwork. Plus, she shows how you can combine all three using wax resist. By the conclusion, you will have picked up skills and ideas for creating personal pottery forms with colorful, layered surfaces.
