Instructor: Kevin Crowe
September 5 - 8
9am - 2pm
In this workshop, we’ll explore a variety of forms and the details that give them life - handle placement, spout angle, the relationship of foot to rim, and quick tension of line held between them. First we’ll throw a series of small forms, finish them and then throw the same forms on a larger scale. We’ll examine how scale influences our decisions about those finishing details. Bring a sense of humor. Good for all levels.
