Making a Tray for a Non Round Form


Marty Fielding enjoys making nonround angular forms, but is a wheel thrower at heart. So, rather than building from the ground up with slabs, Marty makes the walls of his pieces on the wheel then cuts them up and assembles them to get the pots he wants.

In today’s post, an excerpt from his DVD Hybrid Pottery: Throwing, Altering, Assembling, Marty shows how he makes cool trays for his diamond-shaped oil bottles. -Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

  • Hi there. I really appreciate the points you made. I don’t think I’ve actually thought about it in that way. I can really appreciate how you approached the subject matter and what you said really gave me a new perspective. Thanks for taking the time to write this all out.
