New Instructional DVD Pre-Order

fielding-cover

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’m looking forward to being back on Mockernut Road between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, NC. I’ll be there for a long weekend, the first in August, to join my friends Doug Dotson and Ronan Peterson for this festive sale in Doug’s Studio.

I shared this studio with Doug in 2001 and 2002 and we took the first steps in figuring out how to fire his newly built soda kiln. It was a great place to work amidst the tall trees and boulders of granite.
