In this installment of the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents Video Series, potter Lisa Naples shares her love of handbuilding with earthenware. Determined to change the myth that earthenware is punky and weak, Lisa explains how this beautiful forgiving clay body is every bit as strong as its higher-fired counterparts when it is fired beyond the traditional Cone 04. In addition to covering the mechanics of good slab rolling, Lisa guides you through her straightforward soft-slab building techniques. She demonstrates how to add interest to handbuilt forms by adding texture and cutting darts to create custom shapes. In the decorating portion of the video, Lisa gives a thorough explanation of her “dry” and “wet” slip brushing techniques, explaining how they can add both beautiful texture and color. In addition, she explains how to effectively use animal imagery to tell stories on functional objects.
