If you love pottery, but don’t have access to all of the tools (like a potter’s wheel for instance), today’s video is for you.
In this video, an excerpt from Handbuilding with Mitch Lyons, Mitch demonstrates making a seamless cylindrical form using a series of dowel rods in graduated sizes to hollow out the center. It is a great technique for handbuilding cylinders because you can really do a lot with surface texture, as Mitch demonstrates. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
