Posted On October 1, 2012 3 Comments

If I wasn’t a potter, I would probably be a printmaker – not that you can’t be both, but these days I barely have time to be a potter. So for now, I just satisfy my love for printed things by printing on clay.

One printing technique that I have been meaning to try lately is printing with linocuts. I love the “wood-blocky” effect that these prints have. In today’s post, Paul Andrew Wandless demonstrates how linocuts can be made and used for printing onto clay and stamping into clay. Fun!

Posted On December 3, 2010 22 Comments

This past summer, I had the pleasure of spending a couple of days with Paul Andrew Wandless to film an instructional DVD on screenprinting on clay. In any video production, there are inevitably parts that get left on the cutting room floor. But lucky for us, they don’t have to be lost forever because we can share them on Ceramic Arts Daily – which is what I will do today. In this clip, Paul demonstrates how screens and stencils can be layered to add more impact to an image.

Theme: Throwing
It’s time to break out of those winter doldrums and get psyched with some fresh ideas for spring! We’ve got some hot projects and groovy techniques we think you’ll really enjoy. They’re not too complicated and allow for a lot of creativity. You’ll have fun displaying your thrown pieces in a handbuilt unit, or maybe you’d like to try your hand at cutting apart your work and reassembling it. David Hendley demonstrates how to take extruded forms and finish them off on the wheel, while Keith Phillips wows us with his salt and pepper shakers. The sooner you get to the studio, the sooner you’ll have some new pieces made.
