All the pots in the tube series are made using a piece of metal tubing to form the sides of these pots. Each piece of tubing is bent by hand to form a shape. The sides are then covered in polymer clay which makes these very sturdy pots. Different finishes are added to complete the process. There are three sizes of tubing used to create the three sizes of pots.

The first post in this thread are all large.

Oh, how nice to discover a new method for making pots!
So the tubing is included in the interior of the clay wall, is that right? Which adds to the sturdiness of the walls?
Your previous pots had a flexible and light weighted feel/touch to its construction. How does the tubing method change this?

Yes, the tubing in the sides of these is covered with clay on both the inside and outside of the pots. These are heavier because of the tubing but mostly because of the additional clay used to cover it, and they are not flexible like my other polymer clay pots. But I'm liking the sturdy feel of them a lot.
