Video of the Week: How to Throw and Assemble a Yummy Candy Dish

In my humble opinion, you can never have enough receptacles for candy. I really love Jake Allee’s candy dish project from his DVD Assembly Required: Building Complex Pottery Forms by Throwing, Altering, and Assembling because it reminds me that I could probably use some more candy dishes in my world.

More importantly, because of Jake’s technique of throwing, altering, stretching, and assembling, I started to really think about new ways to make them. Hope it whets your creative appetite too! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

  • Jake,

    That was amazing how you put together different parts. In the end I was almost hoping to see you having used runny glaze to accentuate the lines and bubbles!

    Thanks, I enjoyed watching the technique.

    What am I missing?

    J’aime beaucoup, mais en effet : how did you make the lid?

  • Excellent video and artist’s comments erudite and minimal. Am especially impressed with the camera angles i.e., close-ups and small upper left window showing two views. . .well done Jennifer and compliments to the crew at Ceramics Daily. . .thanks so much.

    How do you determine the size of the bottomless cylinder to insure it fits the stretched “hockey puck”?
