CLAY FALL CONCENTRATION (six weeks)
October 1 – November 10, 2023
Good Pots for Good Food
This workshop will celebrate the connection between ceramics and food and how creating finely crafted pottery enhances everyday rituals. From cups and mugs to lidded pots and cooking vessels, we’ll explore a wide range of useful pots for the kitchen and the table. We’ll use Starworks North Carolina stoneware, fire both the salt and wood kilns, and use a variety of slips and glazes, even trying some raw glazing! Students will make lots of pots but will fire only their best. The emphasis will be on improving skills and adding personality to your work. Mostly wheelthrowing with some handbuilding. All levels. Upper clay studio.
