In this class, I’ll show you how to make a textured teacup from a slab of clay. We’ll use stamps, texture plates, and embossed rollers to add visual interest to the surface. Then we’ll make a hollow handle from a slab and attach it to the teacup. This project is suited to all experience levels so let’s get started making our teacup.
