Tips for Darting Wheel Thrown Forms and Pulling Handles off the Pot

lindsaygravy_620I have not done much darting in my work, and the times that I have, haven’t really been too successful. It’s probably because I have been too wimpy with my darts.


In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Pouring Vessels: Making and Decorating Expressive Functional PotterySuze Lindsay walks through her darting process on a gravy boat, and explains that in order to be really successful with darting, you have to get over your fears of cutting too much. Plus, she shows how she pulls a handle off the pot. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
