Let’s explore ceramics together in community and push beyond our boundaries! In this one-day workshop we will learn ways to transform basic forms into sculptural vessels. We will focus on how to alter thrown and hand-built forms using various methods of carving, hand-building, darting, sculpting, adding texture and attachments. Please bring your favorite tools and, if possible, bring a basic form for experimentation. Otherwise, we will use soft slabs that we can stamp, carve and sculpt. We will discuss finishing techniques, drying processes and firing your sculpted work. Get ready for a world of new possibilities!
