A Brilliant Warm-Up Exercise for Brushwork Decoration

This clip was excerpted from The Brush & The Wheel, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Daily Shop!


I love love love the look of brushwork decoration, but up to now, I have been a big chicken about actually trying it myself. I’ve never been very good at getting nice fluid brushstrokes and I have never wanted to practice on a pot. I know I could practice on paper, but it’s just not the same.

In today’s video, an excerpt from Michael Kline’s videoThe Brush & The Wheel, Michael explains a warm up exercise he came up with that approximates practicing on a pot with very low investment. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

  • Impressive, such loose, elegant brushwork. I tighten up the moment I have brush and bisqueware pot in my hands – have to try this approach.
