Dive deep into structure, embellishment, and style. Make complex, multi-sectional vessels from simple, wheel-thrown parts. Learn to dart, stretch, alter, and embellish. Stack and assemble the sections to make pedestalled forms, vases, pitchers, and candlesticks. Enhance your pieces with carvings, sprigs, lids and/or handles, and glazes. Fire pieces you complete early in the week in the electric kiln while we continue to create more work. Be prepared to transport some unfired pieces.
