Past Potters Council president and potter extraordinaire Nan Rothwell returns to CAD today with another fantabulous video. In this one, she creates a beautiful wheel-thrown base for a lamp and gives it a super fun textured surface with a “wiggle wire.”  Not only is the finished product inspiring, but Nan is an excellent teacher and shares some great tips along the way, such as a nifty way to center large amounts of clay. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

P.S. Wiggle wires can be made from stretching out the spring from a ball point pen or any other small spring. Experiment with different sizes! Or you can buy wiggly or textured faceting tools at most ceramics suppliers.
