In this two-week workshop, Sandy Simon and Robert Brady will encourage participants to think about new techniques for hand building and throwing. This is an opportunity for students to see how to make a variety of vessels from the two different perspectives of these teachers. Media & Techniques: During the workshop there will be demonstrations from both teachers on the wheel and in hand building. We will use slips, glazes and black stain for decoration over white or red stoneware that will be fired in our wood or soda kiln.
This workshop will cover numerous pottery-making techniques including wheel-throwing, altering, forming handles, trimming, and exploring surface solutions. Immersion in this two-week workshop with Victoria Christen will encourage and facilitate inspiration, an improvement in your working techniques, and an opportunity to learn from a great ceramist and each other. Victoria will focus on both form, and simple cheerful ways to decorate your pots.
