Summer 2018 Update
Unfortunately I don’t have the resources to continue the 72 Hands project. I have applied for grants and appealed for donations without success. When I have time I will try to upload the 30+ videos of ceramics techniques that I have already filmed. In the meantime, I hope you will visit https://glazy.org, an open-source ceramics recipes library which I am still maintaining.
For the total work required to make a single cup, it must pass through 72 hands, and only then can it become a vessel.
72 Hands is an effort to document all types of ceramics techniques. The video style is very simple- a single take of each technique focusing on the artisan’s hands. Each video is accompanied by an article with a description of the technique and photos. Videos are shot in high-resolution 4K Ultra-HD resolution which gives a clear view of the technique.
