Combining the Industrial with the Handmade

With a bachelor’s degree in ceramics and a master’s degree in industrial design, Adam has always been interested in merging technology with studio craft.

You’ll learn how to:

  • use an adjustable rolling pin for consistent slabs
  • create and use pie molds to efficiently create multiples
  • make inexpensive handmade brushes to create your own unique mark
  • add a built-in hanging system for your plates
  • and more!
