Have you ever felt any of the following? That any handle you would make for a piece would ruin it. You only know of one way to approach making a handle. Your handles are the weakest part of your pieces. Or asked these questions. Where should I place the handle? What type of handle does this piece need? Is there a better way to make this handle? Then this is the workshop for you.
This workshop focuses on wheel thrown forms that incorporate a handle. An emphasis is placed on the mug form, while lidded jars, pitchers, and teapots are also. Every aspect of the handled vessel will be meticulously investigated, in this informative workshop.
Take your pottery forms to the next level and explore strategies for incorporating surface decoration. Work with slip, slip trailing, sprigging, and trimming. Glaze strategies, glaze trailing, and waxing techniques will be presented as well. This workshop will arm you with a new cache of bisqueware and a variety of skills to use on your vessels in the future. Intermediate level throwing required.
