Porcelain Cups and Soda Firing

June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019

Matt Long

This workshop looks at the variations of cups that are integral to our lives and that we use to quench our thirst, make toasts, and that simply generate conversation. The purpose is to discover the function, technique, comfort, aesthetics and self-expression of cups through lecture and demonstration in this hands-on workshop. You will create line and gesture in surfaces in a myriad of ways that include the use of thick slip and finish firework in the soda kiln. All students should have some experience with clay and be able to throw pots. Intermediate throwing ability required.
