The Brush and the Wheel DVD


In this installment of the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents video series, Michael Kline shares his contemporary take on the pottery traditions of the southeastern United States. Using locally dug clay and tools and techniques used by early North Carolina potters, Michael demonstrates a traditional large water jug thrown in multiple pieces, as well as swirlware cups, a pottery style of the Catawba Valley that combines contrasting clay bodies. He also shares a dinner plate form that is a perfect canvas for his brushwork decoration, plus a number of ways to dress up the rims to frame the designs. In addition he shares his brushwork decorating techniques in the greenware and bisque-fired stages, and explains how these can be combined with other slip-decorating techniques to create interesting surfaces.
