It's Mother's Day weekend so to kick it off, today I thought I would feature another one of my favorite clay mamas: Lisa Naples. Not only that, but I thought I would bring back our MAMASDAY sale this weekend only! It's a win win!
Handles can be tricky to get right, and in this post, Lisa Naples shares her technique for making a slab-built handle for a cream pitcher. I love this handle because it is an interesting shape that complements her slab-built pitcher really well, and because, just by looking at it, you can tell it is comfortable. Have a look in this excerpt from Flat to Functional: Slab Building and Slip Decorating! –Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor.
PS: Take advantage of a special combo deal on Lisa's two videos Flat to Functional and Narrative Animal Sculpture—and save more with promo code MAMASDAY!
