Tripod Tutorial

This week I've been feeling really blah and unmotivated. I haven't exercised. I haven't made anything. The most creative thing I've done is choose some new favorites on Etsy! Ugh.

It's time to get myself out of this rut... So I looked up some tutorials and found one that I really want to try:

In the video  "How to Make a Textured Tripod Pot With Soft Slabs" at Ceramic Arts Daily, Sandi Pierantozzi explains how to texture the slab (she used gutter guard), create an even tripod, bulge the sides out, and then add some finishing touches. It is inspiring and simple! Well, she makes it look easy. I'm going to spend some clay time in the studio on Sunday and will give you an update on how it actually goes! Find the video HERE.

PS- I thought some of the comments were really helpful too!


  1. Hey Anne,

    I just found your blog and am so impressed by your pottery. I took some pottery classes for fun, but your stuff looks like art. I also made a documentary about the people in my pottery class. I would have sent you an email, but couldn't find your address on your site. Also, I think I may know your boyfriend because his face and name seem familiar, but I can't figure out how. It's driving my crazy. So good to see you are well!


  2. Hi Chelsea! I'm so glad you found me! Thank you for the nice words :)
