An exciting opportunity to expand and increase the scale of ones pottery making skills. Peter will demonstrate the tools and techniques he uses to centre up to a hundred pounds of clay on the wheel and throw pieces a meter in diameter. For throwing, he uses various ribs, bats and trimming bats. Each will be demonstrated and discussed. As well, tools for improving repetitive smaller scale work will be demonstrated.
Peter’s course will cover all aspects of the process from start to finish, including trimming, slip application and attention to drying. His slip bottle pouring and trailing decoration at the wet, leather, and bisque stage will add a deeper dimension to the variety of techniques experienced by participants. His making of handles, lids, knobs and spouts will contribute to students’ understanding of finishing details. Glaze mixing, application and consistency, especially with attention to specific gravity will be addressed. Students will gain insight into pouring, dipping, and spraying glazes. Decorative techniques explored will include dynamic application of slip and geometric glaze trailing. Methods of making printing sponges for pattern on glaze will also be demonstrated.
Hands on immersion by participants will be an important aspect of the workshop. Discourse surrounding where ideas and designs originate and how we go about executing them will round out this program.
