Beyond the Basics: Tumblers, Cups and Yunomis (HD VIDEO 2 hr 14 minutes)

$49.95 $25.00



This is the second video in a series I am developing to help potters learn at their own pace and develop their own style. The first video, The Fundamentals of Wheel-Throwing, teaches wedging, centering, coning, and pulling a cylinder. It, and other resources, are available on this website.

Beyond the Basics teaches multiple ways to form the lip, body and foot of a tumbler, cup, and yunomi (tea bowl). Through a series of exercises, you will learn how to create a unified form reflecting your own aesthetic. I’ll also show and discuss examples from my personal cup collection so you’ll be able to see how other artists integrate these to create a unified whole.

Have fun. Push the boundaries and watch your skills grow.
