Lively Forms & Expressive Surfaces with Mark Peters

Mark is a potter, but not your ordinary potter. He makes wheel-thrown functional pottery, and a lot of it is altered or assembled off the wheel. Each pot is organic and loose in form, while bold and defined in structure. You’ll find the fresh approach to throwing and decorating demonstrated in this DVD to be absolutely refreshing.

    Totally enjoyed your clear, concise demonstrations and explanations. Very inspirational.
    It appears that you are pulling the cylinder on the opposite side, and that
    the wheel is turning opposite of how mine is set.

    Thanks so much for sharing and demonstrating your techniques. I can’t wait to start making square lidded jars and one of your rims is exactly the foot I’ve wanted for some vases.
