Hot Clay II: Find Your Flow – Throwing Intensive
Learn and develop your throwing skills on the potter’s wheel to make functional pottery as expressive art. We will focus on practice and repetition as the foundation for building tacit [body] knowledge and gain proficiency in making cups, bowls, plates, pitchers and more. New techniques will be introduced everyday for throwing, trimming and decorating greenware. You will improve your visual language through experimentation with form and surface as well as gain an understanding of how to balance aesthetic expression and functional nuances that invite use.
You will leave with bisqued pots. There will be one Cone 6 oxidation firing. You will bring 5-10 small to medium sized pre-bisqued pieces made from cone 6 clay. Bisqueware will be provided for testing glazes and for beginning throwers. Bring your questions, source material, tools, or any other curiosities.
