How to Make 29 Handmade Pasta Shapes With 4 Types of Dough

Luca D’Onofrio shows us how to make various kinds of pasta. Absolutely incredible, not just his skill, but how well this piece is produced. Notice the video overlays.

Building a crude furnace with a hand-powered blower. The furnace is not only good for firing clay (to higher temperature with the blower) but he’s starting to experiment with glazing with wood ash and iron.

He’s an expert at both coming up with great projects and breaking them down into steps but also video editing to show process without narration or dramatic music.

I’ve been a fan for years.
