Learn the basics of hand building with coils, hard & soft slab construction and pinch pots. Investigate sculpture and tile making.
This class will adapt to meet your level. Choose a method of hand-building you really love and stretch what you can do with it. Create multiple forms that can work together like tessellations or stand on their own. Make functional objects or purely artistic work. Incorporate mixed materials; found objects like glass, wood or metal. Students will be encouraged to look at contemporary ceramics as well as ancient artifacts to find inspirations for their projects. Learn new building techniques and surface design.
