Creating Curves with Clay with Martha Grover

Martha Grover demonstrates how she creates her signature curvy forms from wheel thrown and handbuilt parts. She begins by explaining the four basic components of  each of her pieces then combines those components in different ways to create six examples of her elegant forms (plus a bonus project!). In addition, Martha explains her meticulous glazing process. And, although she loves the soft, seductive nature of porcelain, Martha’s techniques can be easily adapted to any clay, firing range or decorating style.

    Enjoying viewing lots of your wonderfull videos through clayflicks
    I have a question though: how is it possible to acces the extra material that is on the dvd, like recipes for the slib or glazes used ? I was not able to find a link to these sections.
