Pieces & Patterns with Deborah Schwartzkopf

In this DVD, Deborah Schwartzkopf presents functional vessels made using a variety of construction techniques. She offers many different examples of working with clay that will enrich your skills whether you’re a handbuilder or thrower. She describes and demonstrates the construction methods for making non-round, expressive shapes in clay by altering thrown forms and using patterned and molded slabs. By laying aside your preconceived notions of what a mug or bowl or any form usually looks like, you’ll be able to embrace the unknown and come up with new and compelling forms.

    Just fabulous! Kept wondering how you made the bisque mold for the pitcher. Way above my paygrade since I’ve only been doing ceramics for a couple of months but I’ve been bitten by the bug! Thanks so much for sharing all this information.
