Daily An Unconventional Way to Add Feet to a Thrown Mug
Most potters throw their pots with a little extra clay at the bottom and trim a foot ring into them. But sometimes it can be nice to switch things up. I have seen potters add feet to thrown forms, but I haven't seen anyone do it like Sarah Anderson. In today's post, an excerpt from the October 2022 issue of Ceramics Monthly, Sarah shows us how she pulls feet similar to how one would pull a handle. The result fits her quirky narrative mugs perfectly!
