Greetings from North Carolina! Yes, the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents video team is in Bakersville filming a couple of DVDs this week, to debut later this year. This area is so rich with both contemporary and historical pottery and we have been having a great time.


But in today’s post, I am presenting a bonus video highlighting a historical pottery technique from another part of the country. In today’s post, Denise Wilz demonstrates how she makes pottery in the Pennsylvania Redware style – one of the oldest pottery techniques in the United States and it combines sgraffito and slip decoration. Enjoy! Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
