Using Simple Components to Make Complex Pottery or Sculpture

Scott Dooley’s work looks to be anything but simple, with its wild angles and off-kilter shapes. But if you break it down to the basics, you learn that it is just made up of a lot of simple parts.

In today’s video clip, an excerpt from his new DVD Handbuilding Modular Forms with Stiff Slabs, Scott demonstrates how he makes the building blocks of his sculptural vessels and the tools he has come up with along the way to make his process easier. With these tips, all you need is some imagination to develop interesting hand built pottery of your own. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
