Today, I wanted to send out a reminder for our DIY Clay Tools Video Contest, sponsored by Digital Ceramic Technologies. If you missed my first announcement of the contest, go here to learn more about it and the amazing prize our sponsor is providing! And what better way to inspire you to get to work on your videos than to share an article about a great homemade tool. In this post, potter Charan Sachar explains the cool design of his easy-to-make and super-effective sink trap. Have a look, and then get out your video camera and start filming for the DIY Clay Tools contest!
Today’s video comes to us from Ceramic Arts Daily reader Charan Sachar. I admire Charan’s ability to make handbuilt forms that are neat and tight. Not that all handbuilt forms have to be neat and tight – loose handbuilt forms are great too – but I definitely struggle with making my handbuilt forms appear well crafted and not sloppy (in my eyes). At any rate, this is an enjoyable video, and I definitely picked up a few tips to help improve my handbuilt pots. Hope you will too!
In today’s video, ceramic artist Charan Sachar shows us how to make a foolproof and ergonomic slip trailer out of some inexpensive materials. Watch the video now! and then make some for yourself. We’ve also included some step-by-step written instruction on the process.
