This class will be an overview of four pottery techniques. Pinch, coil, slab,& the pottery wheel will be introduced. Each artist will choose the way they would enjoy working to create a variety of projects of their own design. From functional work on the wheel to combined form sculpture, the sky is the limit! In our final class we will use colorful underglazes as our final embellishment! This class is best suited to ages 8-teens, and limited to 9 students.
Kim Sheerin graduated in 1996 from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Studio Arts with a focus in ceramics. She has lived and made pottery in Pocasset, Massachusetts on Cape Cod for the past 20 years at The Barn Pottery on Barlow’s Landing Road. Kim makes functional pots – plates, mugs, cups, bowls, and teapots – what she calls “art for every day.” Her work is highly decorated with slip trailing, stamping and sgraffito. She is influenced by the natural world of Cape Cod and by Islamic and East Indian art. She has traveled to India to investigate human trafficking there and to see how young women are being rehabilitated from slavery. Her “pots with a purpose” educate the viewer on that issue.
