Altering, Carving, Faceting and Fluting can add value to your pots.

I hope to find this helpful.

  1. I love that shiny fluted irregular vase!!! Wondering how much clay was used?
    Alo was wondering about the Fish art inside that pie tray .. was it done with underglazes?

  2. The fish is part underglaze and part of glossy trailing slip.
    I don’t remember about the vase weight.

  3. This was a very interesting and informative video. I watched closely the part dealing with undulating shapes and how this makes pots more interesting. I want to try “changing the shapes” of some of my bowls. This video guided me through the steps. I also took note of the way you flip up the bottom on some of your pots. I never thought to do this and it adds interest to the piece. I’m going to try my hand with both techniques.

  4. I really enjoyed this video. There is so much helpful information. You clearly explained (and demonstrated) how to get the different effects. I especially liked seeing the finished, glazed pieces with your different descriptions of both glaze choices and carving or fingering techniques. Very cool. Thank you!
