Do your pots looking tired and bored? If you’re looking for a way to bring life and energy to your work, Suze Lindsay can show you how. In this edition of Ceramic Arts Daily Presents, Suze demonstrates the art of creating pouring vessels that seem to come alive right before your eyes. As you watch her throw, alter, assemble and decorate a series of projects, you’ll see what it takes to add that something extra at every stage of the process. From her demonstrations of an English style jug, a couple of different types of small pitchers, a gravy boat and saucer, a large stacked pitcher and a teapot, Suze’s easy-going spirit shines through her work as she shows you how to add character to each pot.
