Clay Summer Session 2
June 7-19, 2020
Pottery: Vessels for Food
Serving dishes contain and serve; they hold our favorite foods and our cultural histories. In this workshop, we’ll explore a range of historic and contemporary ideas for serving and storing everything from small delicacies to main courses. These ideas—organized around the space of the table—will be the starting point for imagining the form, scale, surface, and structure of pots. We’ll use mid-range clays, glazes, and slips and explore a variety of solutions to transform drawings and sketches into three-dimensional clay forms. Bring family recipes and sketches of ideas for serving dishes. Basic wheelthrowing skills will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels. Code 02CA
