Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-8pm
Instructors: Michele Drozd & Mikey Intrabartola
Handbuilding pottery is an exciting alternative to using the potter’s wheel, and it gives the artist a new opportunity to experiment with form and texture. We will be working with slabs, coils, and molded clay to make functional pots. We'll learn how to create a variety of our own molds from plaster including drape and press molds. We will also learn about and experiment with a variety of decorative surface techniques such as sprigs, slip trailing, and stamping. Participants will look at a range of contemporary and historic pottery, then sketch out ideas and work with different construction techniques. The result will be modern, functional forms. The class will cover basic bisque & glaze firing processes. Each participant will take home their wares, glazed and fired to 2300 degrees in the wood kiln.
