 "Before the Alter & Beyond" 
 

Altering & Texturing Thrown Vessels
2 Days

 To Be Arranged
$200.00


I will demonstrate my throwing techniques, and the various ways to alter and texture the finished pieces.

Saturday: Throwing Intensive

After demonstrations, participants will start by making a series of cylinders in three pulls to get your hands used to the motion of pushing the clay. (think of this as pottery calisthenics) And then move on to making vessels to be used for altering and texturing on Sunday

Sunday: Altering, Texturing, Experimenting! 

We will use selected previously thrown vessels for altering and texture exploration. You will transform the pieces by using a number of handbuilding techniques. You'll paddle, roll, drop, squeeze, impress and carve your way through the leather hard pots, giving you the opportunity to try new ways of finishing wheel thrown vessels. The focus will be on pushing your limits and taking risks with different ideas.

 Even though you will have a few nice pieces at the end of the day, the goal will not be making finished pots.  Instead it will be about exercising your clay manipulating muscles by pushing your limits, and about making fearless decisions to aggressively alter, and texture thrown pots .

Being free from the pressure of making a product will help in developing a fluidity of motion while you work, and give you the opportunity to take risks with different ideas, and perhaps bring more of your personal expression into the pottery you make.

 More Workshops This Spring:
"Before the Alter & Beyond"- Throwing & Altering
"Burnin' Pots" - Raku

''Practice Makes Perfect''
Wheel Working Workshop
Working in Series
To Be Arranged
10:00am - 4:00pm
$100.00


This workshop will focus on enhancing your skills using production
pottery techniques......

We will start by making a series of cylinders in three pulls to get your hands used to the motion of pushing the clay. (think of this as pottery calisthenics) 
I will demonstrate the steps of each pull and other integral parts of making a three pull cylinder.  I will also demonstrate techniques for making cylinders into other round vessels and vases.

Even though you will have a few nice pieces at the end of the day, the goal will not be making finished pots.  Instead it will be about exercising your throwing muscles by pushing your limits. 

Being free from the pressure of making a product will help in developing a fluidity of motion while you work, and give you the opportunity to take risks with different ideas.

It may never be your intention to be a production potter, but the practice you get from this intensive, will help each individual pot you make, easier to form, and the ideas you have in your mind, flow smoother from your fingertips.
