  • Creating Decorative Tile with Impressed Texture. Making your own tile adds a personal touch around the home. Angelica Pozo demonstrates her tips and techniques for combining a variety of textures for tiles.
  • A Quick Method of Stamp Making Using Coils of Clay. Amy Sanders thrives on bisque stamps and uses them on all her work. Some of her stamps are made from coils and this demo shows you how she does it.
  • An Easy-to-Make Space Saving Bat System. Deborah Schwartzkopf figured out a way to secure loose bats on her wheel and save space in her studio.
  • Tips for Extruding Tiles and Trim for Fireplace Surrounds. Tile maker Stephani Stephenson extrudes trim and field tiles for her tile projects and commissions. She shows examples of dies she’s made and how to use them.
