I find it challenging to go from a flat slab of clay to a functional vessel (probably explains why I mostly throw). It is just hard to picture what a two-dimensional shape is going to do when it's folded into a three dimensional shape.
So I loved this little explanation by Sandi Pierantozzi. In this clip from her best selling DVD What if? Explorations with Texture and Soft Slabs, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Daily Bookstore, Sandi shares her "circular logic" and shows you how to turn it into a nice little bowl. - Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
