Wheel 102: Creative Form and Surface
Vessel makers with prior experience will explore a variety of advanced throwing and handbuilding techniques to create larger and/or more complex forms. Participants will also investigate a range of surface treatments to invent lively solutions for their pottery surfaces. No matter their skill level, the class will continue to refine technical skills while exploring personal ideas, thinking innovatively, and receiving helpful advice and constructive criticism.
