Easily Create New Forms from a Block of Clay with this Genius Ceramic Tool

Coming up with your own unique pottery forms is easier when you have the right clay tools for the job at hand. One of the ways that Jerilyn Virden comes up with new shapes is to start with a block of clay, and then shape it into what she wants with a handmade pottery tool she calls a pounding stone (this brilliant clay tool has other uses too!).

In today’s quick excerpt from her new video Part Sculpture – Part Function: Handbuilding Graceful Minimalist Forms, Jerilyn shows us how easy it is to make this super smart tool. –Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
