    I concur whole heartedly with Joyce’s comment about Martina’s articulate, clear instructions. I am a novice wheel thrower and her ability to describe what she is doing as she is doing it in a clear, succinct manner is very helpful. It is obvious that she has put a lot of thought and effort into her presentation. Thank you very much.

  • I couldn’t understand why white slip was applied over all the decoration, and there was no picture of the finished plates to figure it out.

    i have watched many videos to self teach. the ability to rewatch videos is so helpful and has proven to be the best way for me to learn. i am so easily involved when watching a seasoned potter trying to apply the words to how i process and work. so these these clayflick videos are wonderful for me, a visual learner. Martina Lantin is a phenomenal teacher and potter. Articulate and clear in her directions. Seasoned as a production potter but also helpful in her ideas for expression. thanks for the ability to learn new and reinforce skills in an easy way. Kudos the ACM for Clayflicks.
