The Slice Ceramic Cutter Review (for artists)

This is just a quick video review comparing the Slice ceramic cutting tool against a cheaper alternative. The video is aimed towards artists who might use a knife as one of their tools.

I have been using the Slice for about a year after being introduced to it as an amazing alternative to using a craft knife on my work. I was aware that it might be a little too expensive for some people so I thought I would compare it with a cheaper option that is on the market.

Why people believe they can’t draw – and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TEDxHull

Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion – quite literally – in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world.

Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
