Carving with Care: How to Carve Exquisite Patterns on a Mug

There is something about carving into leatherhard clay that is so satisfying. It’s probably why trimming pots is my favorite part of throwing. But using carving as a decorative tool is something I have never really explored. Until now, that is. After seeing Adam Field work, I am eager to give it a try. And after editing Adam’s DVD, Precision Throwing, Intricate Carving, I am equipped with a lot more knowledge on how to do it successfully!
In today’s post, I’m giving you a taste of Adam’s technique and the DVD. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
PS. Adam demonstrates how he makes his Korean–style carving tools on his DVD!
