This workshop will focus on developing strong, refined forms using simple tools. Our primary tools will be the potter's wheel, a sketchbook, and a critical eye. Class time will be a combination of group demonstrations and discussions, as well as time to work one on one with the instructor. Participants will be able to observe demonstrations of wheel thrown pottery forms such as cups and bowls, as well as different approaches to altering thrown forms and combining thrown and hand built elements.  We will explore simple techniques that can be used to create forms both small and large, functional and sculptural. With individual discussions we will develop a path towards refining our forms by strengthening our critical eye and evaluating our own work.
