Clay handbuilding is an ancient pottery making technique, but there is no shortage of exciting work being created today by the hands of ceramic artists. The basic techniques are easy to learn and the range of forms that are produced is very broad.
In this class we experiment with approaches to construction and decoration that help you expand your craft and your art. A basic understanding of clay and handbuilding techniques is preferred for this class.
