Last Friday, I posted a video filmed at a Potters Council conference earlier this year. In the video, Tammy Marinuzzi demonstrated her handbuilding techniques for her figurative functional pottery. I couldn’t quite condense it down to one video, so I had to split it up into two parts.


Today, I am sharing part two. In this segment, Tammy shows us how she makes the lids for her lidded jars, and how she adds life to the work by adding expressive eyes, noses, and mouths. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

This video was filmed at the Potters Council Surface + Form workshop.
