Slab and coil pottery

Patricia Bridges of Bridges Pottery has been making pots for many years. Creating art with an emphasis on functional forms has always been a driving force in her work. Her work is primarily done on the wheel but she also creates a significant collection of hand built pieces made by slab construction. Watch her at work as she constructs a large slab and coil vessel. Its amazing how the multiple layers of glazing over the patterned surface makes the piece come to life.
