Graham Sheehan introduces beginning potters to basic hand-building techniques. After showing how to make simple pinch pots, he demonstrates coil and slab building methods using five different projects of increasing complexity.
The video features close-ups that provide details about how clay should be prepared, how it can be joined to another piece and how glazes can be used to decorate forms. The program concludes with a demonstration of the finished pieces fired in an electric kiln.
"This tape will be of interest to a wide audience and is strongly recommended." – (Video Librarian)
