The Duality Of Clay: Throwing And Altering For Functional And Sculptural Work
April 6, 2017 – April 9, 2017
This class focuses on a multitude of techniques for altering wheel thrown components to create functional pottery and sculptural works. Students discover new ways to make unique forms while learning how the different facets of ceramic art can inform each other. Demonstrations and hands-on time in the studio are supplemented with slides, individualized instruction and lively discussions about historical and contemporary ceramics. Students will leave with expanded skills and fresh ideas for their work. Open to all skill levels, but some experience with the potter’s wheel is recommended.
