Pottery for Beginners: Projects for Beautiful Ceramic Bowls, Mugs, Vases and More by Kara Leigh Ford
THE PAST IS STILL WITH US?
LITTLE JUG • Making jugs is always a joy because they are such a pleasing form and always have a use. For some people, collecting them is almost an obsession and who wouldn’t want to add this little gem to their numbers?
SLAB PLANTER • This planter has been made for indoor use but a simple drainage hole in the base would easily make it perfect for outside too
BUTTER DISH • Butter dishes are a bit like teapots, you can have endless fun creating them in different forms but fundamentally they must function well. This quirky version will make you smile when you use it but, more importantly, it contains a block of butter perfectly
PAINT PALETTE • A palette to decant small amounts of colour into is a really useful item of kit for the potter. We are endlessly working with underglazes, glazes and other colourants that need mixing for surface decoration so it seemed only logical to make a dedicated receptacle to do that in
THE DOLL MAKER
SOFT SLAB VASE • This is a simple method for making a vase with minimal tools and equipment, and has the added advantage that the technique can easily be adapted to make domestic ware like cups, jugs and bowls
CASSE ROLE TO CATASTROPHE AND BACK AGAIN • After my first ever oven dish became my first ever kiln explosion, a second attempt was the perfect opportunity to experiment with the shape
POTFEST GLYNDE PLACE • Matt Cox looks back on the first Potfest event in the South East
MARBLING • Marbling is a slip decorating technique that usually uses two or more colours and is best suited to press-moulded or thrown forms at the leather hard stage of dryness.
