Intermediate Pottery: Developing More Skills - Summer, 2015

In this class, students will continue development of their throwing and hand-building skills with focus on ways elements such as handles, lids, feet, spouts, and texture can enhance individual forms. Glaze application will be emphasized. There will be demonstrations and design challenges. Basic clay experience is necessary; imagination and a sense of humor helpful.

The course fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glazes, and Cone 6 oxidation firings. Cone 10 firing and additional clay are available for a fee.  A variety of clays are available, and clay used in the class must be purchased from the Craft Enrichment Program.
