From Plate to Tureen: Slab and Coil Building

In this installment of the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents Video Series, Gail Kendall  presents her “low-tech” techniques for fabricating beautiful plates, platters, bowls, and tureens using bisque molds, soft slabs, and coils. Starting with the basics, Gail explains how to make structurally sound coil-built molds, and then uses those molds to make a variety of forms. In addition, she demonstrates her sgraffito techniques on soft slip, as well as her glazing process.
