Tips for Darting Wheel Thrown Forms and Pulling Handles off the Pot

This clip was excerpted from Pouring Vessels: Making and Decorating Expressive Functional Pottery, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Daily Shop!

I have not done much darting in my work, and the times that I have, haven’t really been too successful. It’s probably because I have been too wimpy with my darts.

In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Pouring Vessels: Making and Decorating Expressive Functional Pottery, Suze Lindsay walks through her darting process on a gravy boat, and explains that in order to be really successful with darting, you have to get over your fears of cutting too much. Plus, she shows how she pulls a handle off the pot. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

  • I own this DVD, and I have enjoyed it so much and learned so much from Suze Lindsey! I am looking forward to taking a real live workshop with her in the future!
