Wheel throwing isn’t the only way to make seemless cylindrical forms on the wheel. Mitch Lyons uses a technique he calls the broomstick method. What’s great about this method is that you can roll your cylinders over pieces of colored clay to inlay various designs.
In today’s video clip, Lyons demonstrates how he makes colored clays and inlays figurative colored clay motifs into his broomstick vases. I have also included a step-by-step recap of the technique below. Happy Friday! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
