Volume is the key element of functional forms: it defines the potential for containment. During this workshop, students will learn how to create inventive volumetric pots using clay slabs. Margaret will present several strategies for going from flat to three dimensions, including using paper templates, creative cutting and darting of forms, and building in parts. Students will also explore the possibilities for surface embellishment using stamps, molds and sprigs to texture and adorn their work.
