How to Use the Broomstick Method to Make a Vase

lyonsbroomstick_620If you love pottery, but don’t have access to all of the tools (like a potter’s wheel, for instance), today’s video from Mitch Lyons is for you. 


In this video, an excerpt from his DVD Handbuilding with Mitch Lyons, Mitch demonstrates making a seamless cylindrical form using a series of dowel rods in graduated sizes to hollow out the center. It is a great technique for handbuilding cylinders because you can really do a lot with surface texture, as Mitch demonstrates. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
