SOUPER BOWLS - Intensive 2 day workshop

SATURDAY FEB 1st - SUNDAY FEB 2nd 9:30am - 5pm $200

A two day intensive wheel throwing class for students, who would like expand and refine their skills while focusing on one particular form. Must be able to center and throw 3 lbs. of clay.

Give bowls the attention they deserve! Bowls are probably the most intimate, versatile and functional of ceramic forms serving a range of utilitarian needs - from tea to ice cream, cereal to soup, salad to pasta, and more. Each use requires a unique form to meet the function. Crafting bowls demands consideration to the shape, volume, lip, foot, surface characteristics, and ultimately to what the user desires. Each aspect of throwing bowls will be discussed and demonstrated, from throwing small bowls off the hump to throwing 5-6 pounds of clay to make larger bowls, trimming a foot and adding a raised foot. Attention to detail will be emphasized and encouraged. Limited to 5 participants.

Schedule:

Day 1 - Instruction, demos, and throwing of a range of sizes and styles of bowls, decorating with slips. Pieces will be left uncovered to dry overnight for trimming.
Day 2 - Instruction & demos for trimming, adding a tall foot, lugs / handles. There will be a lunch break both days 12-12:45pm. Return to glaze: Sat. Feb 15, 2020 (fee includes 2 hours studio time for glazing).
