Sooner or later, every potter realizes that learning the techniques involved in making pots is not the only thing you need to know to make a great pot. In this class we won't be in the studio learning to make pots, we'll be online learning how to look at them - so that when we can all get back to the studio, we'll return with an improved sense of what makes a pot great.
Craft Enrichment pottery classes draw on the individual technical and aesthetic interests of each instructor. Through group instruction, hands-on experiences and individual help, both beginning and advanced ceramics students will expand their knowledge of throwing on the potter's wheel, hand building, surface decoration, glaze application, glaze formulation, and pottery design. A variety of clays and glazes are available for Cone 6 oxidation firing. For an additional fee, Cone 10 reduction firing is available. Classes are held in Katherine Harper Hall - W. Kerr Scott Hall on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
