About The Class

Instructor: Linda Christianson

Medium: Clay/Wheel

Workshop Title: The Thoughtful Pot

Focus on your own personal curiosities and on improving your individual skills. To create well-crafted and thoughtful pottery, we will work with wheel throwing and altering of form; some hand building with an emphasis on slab construction; and the making of handles, spouts, attachments, lids, and feet. As we emphasize your individual skill and aesthetic development, you will experience personal growth in your work. Pots that are dry will be bisque fired. We welcome both wheel throwers and hand builders. Some experience recommended.

I am interested in a pot that does its duty well yet can stand on its own as a visual object.
