Clay Summer Session 4
Innovation, One Pot at a Time
This workshop will focus on the investigations and explorations involved in creating and refining functional pottery. Using primarily stoneware clay, we’ll work on the wheel and use handbuilding techniques, including slab, carving, and coil. Investigations will include bisque molds, spouts and handles, mark making, and incorporating inspirations. While our focus will be on exploration, you can expect to take home up to three completed new forms and many more experiments and ideas to develop later. Bisque fire only. All levels. Upper clay studio.
