Uncommon Impressions with Kyla Toomey

There is something really special about using a tool you made on your work. Even the simplest of tools made with your own hands make marks that are uniquely yours. Kyla Toomey found that making simple tools enabled her to create a distinctive body of work that is unmistakably hers. If you are interested in making pots that are unmistakably your own, Kyla’s video is packed with ideas and information to help you do that! In addition to inspiring you to think outside the store-bought toolbox, Kyla presents practical throwing and glazing tips throughout the presentation.

Runtime: Approximately  2 hours, 25 minutes

    So much fun! Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I learned so much, especially about glazing and finishing. Your pieces are very fun, and you have a great sense of how to teach! Michele White- Austin, TX

  • I subscribed to Clayflicks streaming but I am only seeing excerpts at the end of which I am told to subscribe….what am I doing wrong?

      Tina,
      You need to scroll down to where there is a list of chapters (Introduction, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc). on the right hand side you should see a + sign. Click on the plus sign for each chapter and you will be able to play the videos. If this doesn’t work, please email editor@ceramicartsdaily.org with answers to the following questions: what browser are you using? Are you logged into your account? What type of device are you using?
      Thanks and hopefully we can get this straightened out soon!

  • I’m trying to fast forward through the video (Making Mugs) and it won’t play. It either keeps playing where I am in the video or just spins and not loading. It is important to be able to go forward and backward in these videos. Thoughts?

    • Hi Sarah, I just tried scrubbing through Making Mugs and couldn’t replicate your issue. Can you please email editor@ceramicartsdaily.org with the answers to the following questions: what browser are you using? Are you logged into your account? What type of device are you using? Is this happening with other videos or just the Making Mugs video in Kyla’s program? Thanks and hopefully we can get this sorted quickly!
