This is a 10 week intermediate pottery class.
We will use the wheel skills we’ve already acquired to make pots that we will be proud to display and use in our kitchens and at our breakfast and dinner tables. Tea bowls for tea and juice, mugs for coffee, pitchers for pancake syrup, teapots for Earl Grey. Along the way, we will improve our throwing skills as we make good, useful pots.
Hollis Engley has been making useful pots for more than 25 years and is a partner with Kim Sheerin at The Barn Pottery in Pocasset.
Fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glaze and firing fee. A tool kit may be purchased for $14. Open studio time, which is scheduled several times throughout the week, is available at no extra charge.
Hollis Engley was raised on Martha’s Vineyard, educated at Cape Cod
Community College and Lycoming College in Pennsylvania and worked
in journalism as a writer, photographer and editor for more than 25
years. He began making pots in 1990 at the Art League School in
Alexandria, VA, and established Hatchville Pottery in Falmouth, MA, in
2000. He joined Kimberly Jane Sheerin at The Barn Pottery in Pocasset
in 2014, where they make their individual and collaborative work.
Hollis makes functional pots – “good pots for good food”. He is
influenced by Japanese, Korean and English country pottery. He fires
with both gas-fueled and wood-fueled kilns.
