My friend Susan Halls has just published a great new book on handbuilding. It is full of all sorts of wonderful ideas and projects on the subject. This is a must have for all beginners and more advanced potters interested in handbuilding. She starts the book with the basic pinch pot and builds from there. Projects included mugs, vases, teapots and more. She also discussed option for both color and surface decoration.

The book is available from Amazon.com for $14.56

On November 8, 2012, The Clay Studio hit the streets of Philadelphia.  Stationed at six different locales with both foot traffic and an abundance of coffee shops, teams gave away 500 beautifully crafted handmade ceramic mugs to 500 individuals with disposable cups.  A tag attached to each mug included information about the project, the mugs maker, and The Clay Studios blog address with a statement encouraging the recipient to post about their experiences using their chosen mug and the relationship they develop with it. - See more at: http://www.theclaystudio.org/exhibition/the-guerilla-mug-assault#sthash.YD8K3B76.dpuf
