Just a shout out here to Amy Sanders. Her Pottery Making Illustrated article is so much fun. I did a little trial and error demo today with my hand building class at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro. I struggled, they watched. The quilted tile is great. Today my class made a bunch of stamps to use later if they make the tile. One of my students has a subscription to the magazine and brought it in today. All commented on how great it was for Amy to share her techniques in such a helpful way. I was thinking that this technique could also make a nice sushi tray or trivet, so I'm going to explore other possibilities this week for my class. I may also try this for summer camp. The theme is nature, so the tiles could have a nature theme. Thanks Amy!!! Of course, I forgot to bring my camera to class, arghh.
