Serve With Finesse
November 15, 2020 – November 21, 2020
Lynnette Hesser and Steve Loucks
During this workshop students will learn to improve their throwing, handbuilding and glazing skills while making unique dishes for serving. You will discover how to alter bowl and cylinder forms by darting, stretching, reforming and assembling them. This will be followed by participants embellishing their creation with carvings, sprigs, lids, handles and more. Various clay methods will be demonstrated, and discussions include design concepts and glazing techniques. Individual instruction is offered as well as assistance in glazing student’s individual pieces. The serving dishes finished in time will be glazed and fired to cone 6 in the electric kiln while making wonderful serving dishes throughout the week. Open to all skill levels.
