Today we are presenting a video filmed at the recent Potters Council Workshop Porcelain in San Diego, California. In it, Mary Cuzick demonstrates her carving and slip trailing techniques. Workshops (and conferences like NCECA) are such wonderful tools for rejuvenating one’s artistic practice and learning new skills, so I thought sharing a workshop video was a fitting way to wrap up our Education Week coverage. If you weren’t able to attend NCECA or any workshops this year, I hope this will provide a little inspiration and rejuvenation to take into your studios!

And if you ever have the opportunity, try to attend a workshop or conference like NCECA. You won’t be disappointed! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
