This class will experience clay hand building through the method of slab construction and slab manipulation, pinching and coiling to create decorative and also functional pieces. Projects will include cylinder vessels, slab boxes and pockets, tumblers, cups, mugs and plates.
This class will also explore surface decorating techniques using underglazes and sgraffito as well as texture techniques and slip trailing that will make your utilitarian pieces come to life with design.
Please note that ceramics is a multistep process. While participants will not be able to complete a fired project in one class, they are encouraged to take a private glazing class or open studio to complete/glaze their project.
Firings occur when there is enough work to fill the kiln.
