The Clennell School of Pottery has just released it's 3rd DVD - Get a Handle
on It! Since the signature of my work has always been the clay handle this
video deals with numerous variations of clay handles (from handbuilt to
pulled to thrown) that I use in my work. Handle variations are demonstrated
on cups, jugs, sauce boats, and casseroles.
We're pleased with the DVD as a educational tool which it is meant to be. If
you learn to make handles as well as I do, pick any town in North America to
set up your studio but stay the hell outta Beamsville.
Sheila hasn't got it up on our website yet but if you e-mail us directly
we'll send ya the details.
More and more it seems like a natural progression for a potter to pass on
what they know.
All the best,
