Beginners start by using your hands and a minimum of basic tools learning the fundamentals of handbuilding. Construction processes are explored such as coil building, slab construction, pinching, and extrusion. A variety of surface decorations such as applied textures, sgraffito, and glaze application is studied. Students will pursue individual projects with assistance from the instructor.
More experienced ceramicists build on your basic handbuilding skills and explore more complex functional and/or sculptural forms. Study will include refinement of handbuilding techniques, surface treatments and finishing options. The class will review and critique fired results to foster the development of a personal style.
