Students will build up their skills in basic hand building or throwing to explore innovative design approaches to making pottery and sculpture. Starting with a choice of terra cotta, stoneware, or porcelain, students will become familiar with colorful stains, terra sigillata, and the use of standard slips and glazes in reduction or electric oxidation firing. Emphasis is on individual guidance as students find their own expressive voice in clay. Prerequisite: Students should have a basic knowledge of clay before enrolling in this course.
Level: Intermediate + Advanced
Supplies: Clay and glazes are provided. There will be a firing fee of $2.50 per pound; pieces with dimensions between 12” to 15” will be $3 per pound.
