This book is for potters looking to explore and gain new skills. I encourage you to jump right in. Start thinking of cylinders and slabs as a starting place—building blocks that can be altered, added onto, or combined in many ways. In this book, you’ll find playful, technique-based projects that will hone your skills on everything from altering and attachments to molds and templates. Try your hand at creating an asymmetrical curving vase or hand-build a teapot spout from a soft slab! Learn how to pick and choose between wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques to get the outcome you want. Venture off the beaten path and use these techniques and projects as inspiration. This is your journey!
Stay tuned for author events in your area!
