In this class you will learn how to make pots of the same shape and size in multiples and sets. A set of matching mugs, plates, bowls for example. Or even a complete dinnerware place setting for two or four or… ! Because the class will focus on multiples of the same form, it is an excellent opportunity to practice and develop your throwing skills even if you choose not to make a matching set of objects. We’ll go over basic functional forms such as plates, bowls, mugs and pitchers. The class will culminate in a reduction glaze firing so that your pots are ready for use and gifting this holiday season. Please note the schedule of this class, as it will meet twice a week for part of the session.
