Theme: The Synergy of Techniques
When it comes to challenging techniques, even the most complicated ones can be broken down into a series of simple steps. In this issue, you’ll get a bonus because each artist takes you step-by-step through a series of techniques to create a work of art. For example, Magda Glusek’s unusual sculpture uses sculpting techniques and decorating with both fired and non-fired finishes. Peter King describes how to handbuild large cylinders you can finish on the wheel and Margaret Bohls makes plaster texture molds as a starting point for her elegant vases displayed on lattice stands. In each article, you’ll find plenty of ideas to inspire your next piece.
