In this hand-building class, we will explore the creation of ceramic wares specific to our personal food narratives of choice. We will learn various building techniques to help us translate our conceptual ideas into physical forms through design and function. This class will challenge us to create outside of conventional ideas of tableware, as well as emphasize building in multiples, surface design and glaze testing. Overall, we will focus on the presentation and interaction with our clay vessels, the food, and the consumer. The course fee includes 25# clay and bisque, glaze firing fees are additional. Class size will remain at 9 student capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory. Proof of vaccination required prior to 1st class.
