Ceramic Arts Daily just announced the upcoming release of the Hybrid Pottery: Throwing, Altering, Assembling. It was a great experience spending a few days in Columbus, OH last spring and shooting this video with the CAD editorial staff their video guru, Kevin Davison.
I demonstrated a pitcher, a box, a teapot, an oil bottle, and a serving dish for the camera. I also show mixing, decanting, and applying terra sigillata as well as underglaze and glaze.
A clip of throwing and assembling a diamond shaped trivet for an oil bottle can be viewed here. I hope you enjoy watching.
The DVD can be pre-ordered now for shipment later in March.
I’ll be teaching a couple of workshops this spring and summer.
The first will be in May at the New Hampshire League of Craftsmen.
Alteration and Decals
This will be a 2-day hands-on class covering altering thrown forms and designing, printing, applying, and firing laser jet decals.
New Hampshire League of Craftsmen
May 19 & 20
The July workshop is at Claymakers in Durham, NC. This was the studio where I taught my first class ever back in 1999. I’m excited be back!
Juxtaposition: Earthenware Form and Surface
This will be 5 days of hands-on throwing, altering, making lids, spout, and handles, applying terra sigiallata, and glazing.
This is the first page of an article I wrote for the July/August issue of Pottery Making Illustrated. The magazine should hit mailboxes in a week. Until then (and after), the rest of the article can be viewed on the Publications page of this website. It is a step-by-step explanation of the techniques I use in making boxes.
I’d like to thank my good friends Niel Hora for his honest and very helpful proofreading skills and Fred Lower for photographing the process.
