Clay Summer Session 1
May 23 – June 3, 2021
Making Methods for Making Pots
New and seasoned potters are invited to join this workshop focused on skill development and the thoughtful creation of utilitarian pots. Discussions and exercises will provoke food-inspired designs for cups, bowls, and serving pieces. We’ll bring our ideas to fruition using stoneware clay formed with slab, pinch, coil, and wheel throwing techniques and bisque molds. Students will learn about gas, reduction, and, potentially, salt/soda firing processes and can expect to take home pieces from those firings along with bisque ware. Beginning level, experienced students are also welcome. Upper clay studio.
