Ceramics: Wheel Throwing - Intermediate/Advanced
Instructor: Sue O'Connor
Students should be proficient in throwing a basic cylinder. From the basic cylinder, we are able to create a multitude of different shapes and sizes. We will concentrate on multiple bowls, mugs, and other functional wares which will enforce techniques, shape, and design. We will review trimming and glazing of pieces as well as learn new techniques including altering and surface decorations.
Prerequisite: Student MUST be able to throw a cylinder and be proficient in basic skills before taking this class.
