Pottery Video of the Week: Design Techniques and Tips for Outstanding Majolica Pottery


I think everyone who has a passion for making pottery has experienced the heartbreak of making a great pot and then ruining it in the glaze stage. I certainly have. In fact, I think glazing and decorating is the most challenging part of this medium.


So today I am sharing this video clip from Linda Arbuckle’s Majolica DVD. Not only does Linda give excellent advice and show examples for how to develop successful decoration. But she also shares a number of great technical tips for painting with majolica colors. Though this clip was condensed quite a bit for web posting, I still think it is packed with great information. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
