Korean Masters

Here is a video I have watched many times and thought if you hadn't seen it yourself, here is the place and time! Or maybe watch it again. It has superb production and the artists are simply amazing. It is the video that I mentioned to my Union University students at the workshop I taught recently.  I hope you enjoy it!

Plates

Michael Kline

Today, I'm cutting plates.

There are a couple of ways I do it. One is with a fettling knife and another is with a modified cheese cutter. Here is a video I produced wayyy back in 2008 showing how I use the cheese cutter.

Enjoy.

 

There's also this video.

Mark Making:Painting: José Parlá video

Michael Kline

Sometimes, here on the internet, someone [thanks David Ernster] will share content with you with a kind of perfect timing. A timing that parallels something you might be thinking about and validates. As I sit here painting pots I was thrilled to hear what José Parlá says about mark making and language. I thought I would share this video with you so when you find it it might speak to you as well.


Reruns

Michael Kline


I had a question from my devout reader, "ratfacedmacdougal", about a certain technique that I use for painting. I'm not sure what they meant, so I guess I'll have to review my youTube channel to remember!

But here are a couple videos that seem to be fairly popular. Not exactly the numbers that this video has and to my knowledge there are no "painting with wax resist " remixes, yet!

This video was one of the early ones.
I remember strapping my cell phone to my tripod with stretch wrap!



Back to packing pottery!
