How to Make an Ordinary Lid Extraordinary

This clip was excerpted from Precision Throwing and Intricate Carving, which is available in the Ceramic Arts Daily Shop!



If there is one thing I have learned from making DVDs with uber-talented artists over the last couple of years, it’s to pay attention to all the details. The details make all the difference in the world.

Adam Field could stop with his intricately carved surfaces and he would have gorgeous pots, but he chooses to go even further and consider every additional detail from the lids to the feet. And the pots go from gorgeous to exquisite. In today’s clip, an excerpt from his fantastic DVD Precision Throwing and Intricate Carving, he demonstrates one such detail (on one of the coolest lids I’ve seen!).- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
