A few weeks back I had the pleasure of traveling to Cincinnati, Ohio, with the purpose of filming some of the demonstrations at the Potters Council workshop “Focus on Function.” These workshops present a terrific opportunity for me to acquire videos of pottery and sculpture techniques from top-notch ceramic artists that I can share with the Ceramic Arts Daily audience. It is kind of like a mini-workshop for those who were unable to attend in person. In today’s video, potter Laura Ross demonstrates how to make lovely and functional thrown and altered baking dish with a slab built lid.
It is a longish video but it is packed with great information. For instance, Laura’s slab-built lid technique is a super cool way to make a snug-fitting lid on an altered form. So sit back and enjoy! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
