In this clip, excerpted from Pieces and Patterns: Complex Forms from Handbuilt and Wheel Thrown Parts (which is on sale as part of our Essential Throwing and Altering Collection), Deb Schwartzkopf demonstrates how she makes the super cool bottoms of her cup forms with a slab and a bisque fired mold. She then skillfully attaches the base to a bottomless wheel-thrown cylinder, which she then darts and alters to make the shape just right. Voila! Not your typical cylindrical cup form. - Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
