  • LOVED this video. He’s an amazing artist and really enjoyed watching and learning what his techniques are. And, I also loved his last 30 seconds when he says…go out there and create… have to run now and do as he says! Thank you Paul

    The white slip made a wonderful overlay for the glazes colors to shine and look almost like a celadon. It gives his work a very delicate surface as a look you would see in porcelain. He has a great teaching style that encourages one to think about sources to draw inspiration for your own work.

    I also work in white clay with red slip–this was very inspiring! A rainy Monday morning, and I wasn’t really motivated to do anything particular in the studio, but I will do this! Thx!

    I have watched Paul in another video and have learnt a lot. Because I work in white clay and fire ^ 9-10 I work somewhat in reverse. But this is where we learn and he has a good teaching voice. Some come across as squeaky. Maybe that is my PC. I love all of the videos and watch them time and time again.
