Mugs are one of my favorite ceramic forms to make (and use) and seem to be about all I make lately. I got lots of inspiration for new mug forms at last week’s NCECA (National Conference on Education for the Ceramic Arts) Conference and can’t wait to get back into the studio to play around.

For those of you out there who like mugs as much as I do, or those who weren’t able to attend NCECA, I thought I would share a fun little mug-making video today. In this quick clip, an excerpt from his video Altered Forms with Textured Surfaces, you’ll learn how Bill Wilkey makes his sweet altered and textured mugs on the potters wheel. –Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor

PS. Bill covers the entire mug making process in detail from start to finish on the full-length DVD!

This clip was excerpted from Altered Forms with Textured Surfaces, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Network Shop!
