There’s nothing like spending a little time with a master potter to learn ways to improve your productivity in the studio. That’s why nothing can beat a workshop (or an apprenticeship for that matter).


Bill van Gilder is one of those potters with a million cool tricks up his sleeve. If you’re not able to make it to a Bill Van Gilder workshop, videos are the next best thing. In today’s post, an excerpt from his DVD Pottery Techniques: Making Lidded Forms and Trimming, Bill shares three nifty tricks that he has developed to help streamline his processes. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
