Learning From Clay’s Gradient of Plasticity
October 11, 2020 – October 17, 2020
In this workshop students will discover how to utilize each of clay’s phases of plasticity from liquid to bone dry. This will make your work easier and allow you to create more complex functional pieces of pottery. Participants will learn how to control moisture in their pieces and to take advantage of the crucial phases of clay such as the soft leather hard phase. During class valuable information will be shared including trimming, forming handles and spouts and clay skill vocabulary. This workshop is particularly helpful for students who only have weekly access to clay outside of class. Wheel throwers and handbuilders are welcome. Open to all skill levels.
