Happy Monday folks! In case you missed it over the weekend, we’re having a sale on one of our best selling DVDs – Sandi Pierantozzi’s What if? Explorations with Texture and Soft Slabs. So today, I’m sharing a great clip from the DVD. 


In this clip, Sandi takes a basic cylindrical tumbler made with soft slabs, and adds a bit of elegance by paddling the bottom and adding a foot ring. I loved the way this foot turned a plain old cylinder shape into something a little more fancy. The clip is also full of little tidbits that can be applied to a lot of studio practices. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
