Bakersville, North Carolina, is a pretty idyllic place, especially if you are a potter. Not only is there a big clay community, but there is breathtaking beauty all around from which to draw inspiration, and most of the potters I’ve met there work in studios that take advantage of those views.

 

Suze Lindsay is one of those potters. Her studio backs up to a beautiful forest, and the critters in that forest have no doubt made their way into her pottery. In today’s post, an excerpt from her DVD Pouring Vessels: Making and Decorating Expressive Functional Pottery, Suze shows us how she decorates one of her animated bird-inspired pitchers. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
