This workshop will explore the creation of dynamic forms and vessels using the coil and pinch method of building with clay. Students will explore simple, elegant forms that we will pit fire during class with Terra Sigillata, slips and organic materials. In addition participants will create more complex, intuitive pieces by incorporating design through the cutting and reattaching of clay to create lines and shape and learn about creating subtle but rich surface with the layering of slips, sigs, washes.

All skill levels are welcome.
