Over the past summer, North Carolina potter Amy Sanders came to town and filmed a DVD with us. Amy is a fan of texture on pots and had a bunch of great ideas for handmade texture tools (many of which were new to me) in addition to pottery projects on which to use them. I still haven’t had the opportunity to try them all out, but definitely plan to.


One of my favorite handmade texture tools was what I like to call her “rolly line tools.” In today’s video, an excerpt from that technique-packed DVD, Amy demonstrates how to make and use these tools. So Simple, so smart- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
