Ceramic Handbuilding Video: Get Into the Artist’s Head – An Interview with Ceramic Sculptor Tom Bartel

Posted On September 12, 2008 8 Comments

Today we are trying something a little different with our video of the week. We are featuring an interview with ceramic sculptor Tom Bartel, who is exhibiting his new body of work at Sherrie Gallerie in Columbus, Ohio. The interview also features a short demonstration of Tom’s handbuilding techniques. We thought this would be a great way to not only let those outside of the Central Ohio area experience this fantastic exhibition, but also, to get to know the artist, his motivations and processes. Hope you enjoy it! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

In addition to what is covered in the video, we have included some more information on Tom’s processes and some of his glaze recipes as a free download below.
