Andrew Gilliatt makes the prototypes for his fun, imaginative forms using MDF (a wood particle board) and a lathe. Then he slip casts them using various colored slips.


But in today’s post, an excerpt from his new DVD Layers of Color, he explains that you don’t have to have a wood lathe for this process. You can come up with your own great shapes using clay. I am super psyched to play around with some new forms of my own. Hope you will be too! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
