  1. Looking forward to more videos on tools! I have chronic fatigue so it's hard for me to leave home to attend a pottery class. Am hoping to learn what I need to start sculpting with clay from watching videos.

    Would love to see a video on the different types of clay bodies as you call it. You mentioned in one video that you need a more gritty clay for sculpting. Would love to see you demonstrate the different types of clay and how to use each.

  2. I use a dowel for my sponge-on-a-stick and fasten my sponge on with rubber band…and I mark inches on the dowel.   By the way, this was a nice video. Keep up the good work!
