This week’s video is an oldie but a goodie. It was filmed at a Potters Council workshop in Kansas City a few years back, and in it, Mark Peters show us how to make a lively textured hors d’oeuvres tray.
Mark is so good at taking a simple idea and the most basic of tools – a lump of clay, a sponge, and a stretched-out spring – and turning it into a loose, yet elegant piece of pottery. Have a look and then give this one a try! – Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor
