This video (STREAM or DVD), is a demonstration overview of my favorite ceramics decoration techniques from workshops I've taught across North America since 2002 as well as signature deco from my Massachusetts studio. The goal of this instructional video is to show techniques that may be unfamiliar, offer a new take on the traditional, and generally inspire interest in the potential of the ceramic surface.
I demonstrate eleven different surface decoration techniques for "suede" to leather hard in this 1 hr & 25 min video, including stamp-making & stamping, slip-trailing*, slip-sponging, paper resist, water-etching, sgraffito, mishima/ inlay, carving, and sprigging.
* My A Slip Extravaganaza! recording is now available and features more detailed demonstrations of slip-trailing, slip-sponging, and paper resist.
Thank you for your interest & support for this independent project.

Customer comments from around the world:
“I must say this video is wonderful. It’s like sitting next to you and having a private tutor. But being able to rewind to any part and relive it again. Great video. Worth every cent.”
“Patiently (not) waited for my family to go to bed and stayed up til 12:50 watching. It was like eating really exquisite chocolate, and I can do it over and over. Thank you so much.“
“Thank you so much, there is no doubt I’ll use some of your shared techniques and advices in my works. Very particular, full and interesting information. Once again – thank you” ~ Lithuania
“I just finished watching your video ~ LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise. It’s extra special that you did this project with your father :)“
“I have watched it through and am so inspired to try all of the techniques out. I am new to pottery and have admired your work on line for some time, have tried to make stamps, but was carving them in clay, not very successful. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am. Thank you sooooooo much for making this great video, I look forward to the next one you make.“
