naplesjoints_620I am happy to announce that the lovely Lisa Naples’s DVD Flat to Functional: Handbuilding and Slip Decorating, is making its debut to the world today. Lisa is a consummate teacher with a gift for explaining how her hands manipulate the clay. In today’s clip, I’ve gathered a couple of particularly good little nuggets of information on making your slab built joints super strong. Enjoy! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
