Deep Dive Into Bowls

Deep Dive Into Bowls

Beloved by cooks and potters alike, bowls are, on the surface, simple, but full of nuance and complexity when details such as rim, foot, volume, proportion and weight are studied. In this 2 day wheel-throwing workshop, dive deep into bowls. the class will begin by spending time looking at and talking about forms, then move on to wheel throwing exercises designed to improve the students’ consistency and control. Focus on details that express the object’s character.

On day two, students will work with leather-hard forms and explore the possibilities of this stage: stamping, trimming, carving & constructing. Play with bowls as building blocks for larger and more complex objects. They may use this workshop purely for skill building and 3-d sketching, or plan to take home and fire leather-hard to dry pieces.
