This first slide show gives you an idea of how the twisted and pumpkin forms are made starting with a simple barrel shape.  Below is a short video that spans the inventory at our showroom.


The extruded items are then altered and hand built. A long 8 sided tube is extruded and cut to length. These are set on a slab to create the floor. A sponge on a stick is used to push out and stretch the form into the curves. the rim is pinched and stretched, handles attached and pulled into  the ribbon shape and details are sculpted and applied individually.
