How my hand looks after shaping a vessel from the inside on the wheel. Notice how many surfaces on my hand are covered in clay. That’s how many points of contact I have with a vessel’ inner wall as pull and shape. I use my entire hand. Many avoid contact with hand surfaces other than the finger tips. My students learn to use their entire hand 🤚🏽

Can anyone think of a name for this new glaze? I’ve had this vessel in my studio for months before finally deciding how to glaze it. I’m happy I was patient with this one👌🏾

Can anyone guess what I’m explaining to my students? Was an enjoyable and productive start to a week long workshop in Tortus’s Copenhagen studio. Today we stuck to the basics👍🏾

The rewards of hard work. These are just a few of the new vessels that are coming out of my kilns these days. No two identical. Will enjoy them while they are around. Most of this will be shipped off next week.

Do you prefer the one on the left or right? These new vessels could be exotic fruits. They are covered in two similar glaze types, but with very different effects. It’s lovely with a little variety❤️

Grouping my vessels for glaze. To make things a little bit more easier for my glazing flow, I first group them by color, then glaze them one color at a time. Today I only glazed vessels in black. Tomorrow I glaze all gold and white vessels. Will also try to fit in a few experimental glaze combos....

I’ve made a new type of streaked surface with with a matte and glossy texture? What should I name this type of effect glaze🤔?

New vessel with a new glaze effect. Notice the streak pattern on its surface. It’s fascinating how altering my glaze application just slightly can have such an effect. Looking forward to exploring this effect further👍🏾

It helps if your clay is a little on the stiff side for a vessel like this. Took 22 minutes to make in 3.5 kg of clay. _ Music by Ketsa Music _ #ceramics #pottery #handmade #makersgonnamake #creative #ceramic #clay #crafts #potteryvideos #diy #artsandcrafts #potterywheel

Preparation is everything in pottery. Discipline requires respect for each and every step of the process. Where it goes wrong for far too many is clay prep and treatment. Many complain of bad pulling and shaping technique, and their technique is actually not as bad as they think. Often their problems stem back from the first steps at the wheel. Clay selection, wedging, and coning. If one understands and respects these steps better, one can then get in that 4th and 5th pull without the wobble, achieve thinner and more even walls, and close the neck of that bottle that normally twists✌🏾

Two years have now passed since our Maria @maria enaes started her apprenticeship at TORTUS. A little shy at first, Maria worked her butt off and quickly became an integral part of our team and family. Our members and students will agree. She is awesome! Her training officially ended 2 days ago. And she has become one of the most capable potters I know💪🏾.What a talent and what a bright future she has ahead of her! Norwegian Maria now calls Copenhagen home and we are happy for that. We’d hate to lose her, and we are happy to be able to hold onto her for a little while longer as her role changes in the studio as an employee👍🏾. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication and good luck with your future endeavors! Let’s hear it for Maria!!!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽❤️❤️❤️

Putting some finishing touches on a unique large vessel. I’m scaling things up this week as I prepare for a show in a couple of weeks. More to come✌🏾

Starting the week with a few taller vessels. These types of vessels are amazing canvases for glaze because of the height and surface area. I expect this one to be complete by the end of next week as I prepare for an exhibition in just weeks!

A TORTUS Workshop would not be complete without our very important group photo. We started the week as a group where many of us were total strangers and end it as friends❤️. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable week!
