Pots that Serve

This class will focus on some fun techniques that can be used in making unique serving dishes and vessels. This course is best for students with some competency on the wheel. The first part of day one will be demonstrating some techniques such as double walled vessels, rolled rims, throwing and altering a form and adding a lid, and discussing some practicalities of using pots for serving. The afternoon will be for students to start on some of their own pieces.

Day 2 will be spent on finishing and assembling some of the previous day’s work and some decorating techniques such as stamping and texturing, mishima, water water etching and rice paper transfer designs and how to use them. Hopefully these skills will help to bring some excitement to tableware and serving dishes! This is a hands-on class and the instructor will help students experiment with these techniques.

NOTE: Work will NOT be fired but can be taken home by participants.
