Ever since buying one of Chandra Debuse’s yunomi’s a couple of years ago, I wondered how she created the biomorphic volumes that give these forms their wonderful Seuss-like quality. Turns out, they are made with the aid of craft foam – that craft store staple that is ubiquitous in children’s art projects.
Chandra reveals the secrets to the sweet swells of her yunomis and some other great tips in today’s post, an excerpt from her video Sketch & Stretch: Creating Playful Pottery with Illustrated Surfaces. Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
