technical tuesday: Creating a Round Slab Cup with a Darted Squared Base From a Textured Slab with a Focal Accent
This video was originally made to help my Ceramics II students on their Textured Slab Set with Focal Accent Project. In the video, I demonstrate how to roll and texture a slab, and create a cylinder with a squared darted bottom. I used a piece of craft foam from which I cut my feather focal accent, and I used an MKM wooden roller to create my repeated texture in the background. I also demonstrate how to create a handle with the same texture as on the cup.

I am a high school visual arts and ceramics teacher at William Mason High School in Mason, Ohio. I have been teaching for over 25 years, and have been working in clay since 1986 when I took my first ceramics class in college! I have an Etsy shop where I sell my personal pottery which I make at home. www.etsy.com/shop/KaransPotsAndGlass
