« back to classes page
The emphasis of this eight week course is on pottery as a process within the context of the potter's wheel and its relation to the body. This course will introduce basic concepts and processes of the potter's wheel: the creation of functional forms on the potter's wheel, trimming, wheel wedging, centering, relaxation, ceramic vocabulary, aesthetics; and glazing. This course will address several challenges involved with learning the potter's wheel: developing patience through practice and aesthetic innovation. With the additional self-paced practice days, you can practice the things that are more difficult to each individual student. All material, tools, and firings will be provided by the studio.
