Flat to Form: Handbuilt Pottery

October 20, 2019 – October 26, 2019

Jeremy Randall

During this workshop students make vessels by exploring slab construction, producing forms that are out of the round, and learning new ways to incorporate volume, texture, color, surface development, electric firing, and post firing construction. Using a template method of generating ideas and drawing form, participants will take flat shapes and transform them into volumetric objects using terra sigillata to create enlivened surfaces. You will also develop an approach to decoration that looks at line, texture and form to make decisions that build upon your visual vocabulary. The vessels students create will be full of reference and rich with visual interest. Some handbuilding experience is beneficial, however all experience levels are welcome.
