Pottery Video of the Week: Using Plastic to Make Handbuilding with Thin Slabs Easier

Posted By Lorna Meaden On September 21, 2012 @ 12:11 pm In Daily,Features,Handbuilding Techniques | 2 Comments

Most master potters have at least one signature piece or technique that they are known for. These signature pieces embody years of study, practice, and refinement, and demos of these pieces are often requested by workshop attendees.

 

That’s why we decided to start a new series of CAD videos that focuses on in-depth demonstrations of the signature forms of well respected and talented ceramic artists. I’m happy to launch that series today with the release of three “Signature Series” downloadable videos: Lorna Meaden’s Watering Can; Suze Lindsay’s Ewer; and Mike Jabbur’s Teapot.

 

These shorter downloads will be great for folks who are working on developing a form, need a little more insight or inspiration on that form, but don’t necessarily want a full-length DVD.

 

For today’s video, I have excerpted a bit from Lorna’s Watering Can video in which she explains a trick she came up with to make handbuilding with thin porcelain slabs easier. Have a look! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

 

ps. To see excerpts from the other two videos, go here!
