Ceramic Vessels with Volume
Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada's ideas have shaped studio pottery since the Arts and Crafts Movement and continue to nurture potters today. Their concepts on the "Majesty of Volume" inspire this class, where Bob Green shares techniques for throwing classic vessels. Drama unfolds as stretching adds breath and volume to forms. Learn sophisticated ways to use basic tools to add details and marks that will later capture glaze or reduction. Basic wheel experience required. No firing during class.
Firing: In some classes, there is not enough time for ceramic projects to dry and be safely fired during the workshop session. However, post-workshop bisque firing can be arranged for an additional fee up to $50. Classmates may choose to share the cost of firing the kiln. Students are responsible for shipping and handling costs, or may pick up their work in person one week after the class ends.
