CLAY SUMMER SESSION 7
AUGUST 13–18, 2023
On Pots and Food
Using wheelthrown plates and bowls as our foundation, this workshop will investigate the relationship between pottery and food. From design to execution, we’ll focus on how form and surface design can affect how food is perceived. Slide talks and demonstrations will keep food at the center of the discussion. Decorative techniques will include texture and resist processes using paper, tape, vinyl, and wax. A range of clay bodies will be available; we’ll conclude with a bisque firing. Basic wheelthrowing skills will be helpful but this workshop is open to all levels. Upper clay studio.
