9am - 1pm
The interaction between food, people, and handmade pottery is one that is enriched through experience. In this class we will focus on the pots that present and the vessels that serve. Forms like vases, pitchers, baskets, and platters will be focused on, allowing for participants to go home with new ideas that will enliven the table. Through the use of templates, texture, and color, we will work on forms that will be the strength of any dinner party table or quiet family meal at home. Handbuilding experience will be helpful.
