Are you interested in altering, but afraid to step out of your comfort zone? Do you struggle with throwing larger volumetric pots? In this video, Martina Lantin will teach you how to throw caution to the wind and push the boundaries of your clay body to create exciting new work. Altering thrown pots is an exciting way to create interesting work that stands out from the crowd, but making that first cut into a freshly thrown pot can be a little scary. Martina will help you push aside your fears and you’ll soon discover the fun of deconstructing your work and putting it back together again!
