Description

How to successfully make larger and taller pots? The class will break down the process of clay management from understanding the consistency of clay, wedging, centering, making a cylinder, shaping the piece, drying, to finishing the piece. Instructions will be adjusted to each student accordingly in each of the steps as necessary to improve the overall outcome.  Students will learn how to measure their work with hand dimensions and develop an understanding of their own relationship with clay. Adjustment of how one sits in front of the wheel to how one supports their arms and hands will be made in order to gain the most advantage. The goal is to learn how to plan and execute a larger piece of work, and the clay management necessary to achieve the desired outcome.
