Joyce Michaud builds an appendage off of a coil-built form.

A few weeks ago, I posted a clip from Joyce Michaud’s new DVD Hand Thrown: East Asian Wedged Coil Technique. In the clip, Joyce gave a great introduction to this technique, which combines coiling with potter’s wheel concepts. This combination makes for coil-built pieces that are very strong structurally.


Today I decided to share with you another tasty morsel from the DVD. Joyce takes the instruction further by explaining how these same principles can be used to make very strong appendages on pieces. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
