Clay crafting videos

A couple of videos just for fun. I’ve mentioned Eva Funderburgh on the blog before; I’m quite fascinated with her little beasts and hope to own one some day. After encountering a somewhat expected technical issue in my own ceramic sculptures, I went back and watched one of Eva’s time-lapse videos. I just learned of Ayumi Horie last week thanks to Twitter. Her dry throwing technique is something I definitely want to try — if I ever actually get back into throwing.

He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
