Hand-building: Sculptural pieces or Functional ware
Employing ages-old ceramic techniques, learn how to play with earthenware by pinching shapes, utilizing coils, and manipulating slabs into:
- Practical, functional ware. Design a distinctive line of utilitarian pieces;
- Unique sculptural statements. Experiment, develop, and expressively extend your own particular ideas.
You will finish the smooth, white earthenware clay-body with painterly under-glazes and bright, glossy low-fire glazes.
Ceramics on the Potter’s Wheel
Designed for burgeoning potters 10 years-old through adults, private or semi-private time is dedicated to learning the tricks of this trade. Initially, an introductory two-class minimum is required. Through detailed demonstration and personalized step-by-step coaching, the first meeting will focus on “throwing” a basic cylindrical vessel. The second meeting will complete the pieces, trimming and decorating the leather-hard ware in preparation for the initial “bisque” and eventual glaze firings.
To fine-tune and further develop technique, theory, and design beyond this introduction, schedule additional 2-hour sessions one at a time or devise a series.
|Two 2-hour Private session||$160|
|Two 2-hour Semi-private session||$125 each potter|
Series: pre-scheduled additional sessions:
|2-hour Private session||$75 per class|
|2-hour Semi-private session||$ 60 each, per class|
