Description

Print this Page
This is a ten week class.

Develop hand building techniques and combine with wheel throwing. We will draw on various historical and contemporary ceramic approaches to influence our creative thinking. For preparation, do some Google research on pottery from ancient Mayan, Japanese, African, or a culture of  your choice, or choose a contemporary ceramic artist whose work intrigues you. We will use your research as the basis for work made in this class.
