Process: Put A Lid On It!

Friday March 24 3:30pm-4:00pm

Portland Convention Center B113-116 (level 1)

A good fit is important. Not only should a lid fit tightly, but it should also feel and sound satisfying when you set it on top of your pot. I will demonstrate how to grind down a lid once it is fired as well as some other ways to build a lid. For example, I will show how to build a slab pillow lid for a wheel thrown pot.
