Recently there was a poll about favorite pottery books that folks would recommend. I am wondering what pottery DVD's folks would recommend. Does anyone have any favorite DVD's they've learned from?

I love the Surface Decoration DVD that Kristen Kieffer released a couple of years ago. Sandra Pierantozzi's "What If..." DVD is also a winner.

I have a favorite pottery instructor on Youtube. His name is Hsin-Chuen Lin. He has about 87 excellent throwing and teaching videos. As a novice potter I have learned so much from him. His website is www.mypots.net.

Dear Laurel,

I could not agree with you more. An absolutely fabulous potter. He has taught me detail, detail and detail. He does everything he can to make sure everything on his pots are crisp and clean. He reminds me that yes, you can throw a pot but attention to the details of such things as where the lip, neck, hips etc stop and start are important. He reminds me to look and look again at how the form flows. I made a moon pot just last night and was blown away that I could accomplish this form by careful recollection of the steps in his video.

On another note, I also like Simon Leach for his laid back approach. And yes, I would like to see more of John Britt's work if I was to be honest. His videos are quick but jam packed also with great tips.

These are my favorites and I do follow You Tube every single day to see what has been posted. Call it ongoing education...

Nelly
