Clay Summer Session 1
May 24 – June 5, 2020
Innovation: One Pot at a Time
This workshop will focus on the investigations and explorations that go into creating and refining functional pottery forms. Mostly using stoneware, we’ll work on the wheel and use handbuilding techniques including slab, carving, and coil. We’ll also cover bisque molds, spouts and handles, mark making, and incorporating inspirations. Although we’ll focus on exploration, students can expect to take home a few completed new forms and many more investigations and ideas. The workshop will include daily discussions, demonstrations, and experiment-oriented exercises. Bisque fire only. All levels. Code 01CA
