I know I say it a lot here on Ceramic Arts Daily: “consider every detail when making your work!” I’m sorry to be a nag, but it’s very important! It’s what separates a good pot from a super fantastic objet d’art.

 

Tom Turner considers every detail on his pots, even the underside of lids. Initially, He came up with the flange system he uses to act as a counterweight on teapot lids so they would stay put when pouring tea. But he considered every last detail and realized that these flanges could be enhanced with texture. Now he uses them on all of his lidded pots. In today’s post, an excerpt from his new DVD Tom Turner: Understanding Porcelain (now available in the Ceramic Arts Daily Bookstore), he shares his technique. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
