Pottery Video of the Week: Using a Masonite Template to Make Perfect, Consistent Ceramic Tiles

Posted By Angelica Pozo On July 6, 2012 @ 8:19 am In Daily,Features,Making Ceramic Tile,Video | 1 Comment


It’s hot out there, and if your studio is air conditioned or in a cool basement (as many clay studios are!), it is a perfect excuse to stay inside and make work. And to help you get inspired, we are having a DVD sale! For a limited time, you can save 10 bucks on select titles, including Angelica Pozo’s Creative Tile Making DVD!  


As a tile artist who does lots of public art commissions, Angelica Pozo makes a LOT of tiles. So she has developed many tricks and techniques along the way to minimize loss and make certain that she is making consistent, even, and flat tiles. In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD, Angelica shares her nine-tile template system. Angelica also shares how she prepares the backs of the tiles, either for installation or for hanging as decorative wall pieces. I really liked the simplicity of this system. I think you will too! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
