This advanced class will be for students who already know the basic skills on the potter’s wheel and can comfortably make a 6“ tall cylinder. We will make a variety of wheel thrown forms on which we will attach handles, spouts or lids. The instructor will demonstrate several techniques and styles of these additions with the goal of creating more complex and expressive utilitarian pots for daily use. Lidded jars, pitchers, and teapots will be our focus. The 6 classes in this session will be about making the pots, but all finished work will be bisque fired and the student can make arrangements to glaze their work to be fired to completion.
