Online 1:1 help & support for potters

Making ceramics is such a wonderful and relaxing creative practice, but wether you have already some experience or wether you are just starting doing pottery, you may come across some rather challenging technical problems, that are often not easy to fix by yourself.

Over the years I have encountered myself lots of frustrating issues, but luckily I have had some very experienced professional Italian potters in the near, who I could ask for precious advice about all sorts of problems related to my kiln, glazing or wheelthrowing.

Because I know how important it is to be able to ask someone for advice, when we are trying to fix a technical problem, I offer a 1:1 online help&support service for potters and anyone working with ceramics.

How does this work?

First we make via email an appointment for a 20 mins free zoom call, so we can get to know each other and you can explain and/or show me what you would like to resolve.  We discuss how I could help you and what would work best for you.

If you have issues related to working on the wheel or handbuilding this could be for example a series of tailor made online lessons to help you improve your throwing technique.

If you have problems with glazing, glazes or firing. We work out a step by step plan to resolve the issues.

If you need advice about choosing a kiln or pottery wheel, if your kiln is not working properly or if you are wondering wether to buy a used kiln we make an appointment to calmy look at this and to find the solution, that works best for you and your pottery practice.
