2 Sessions: Saturday, December 10 & 17
This 2-session workshop offers an introduction to hand building with clay to create sculptural vessels and or containers. Learn how to build with the instructor, step-by-step, creating a large vessel with the coil and pinch technique. Aesthetic choices can reference anything from boxes, baskets, chests, drawers, to reliquaries, urns, butsudans, and more. Think about form and function by examining ways to translate ideas of a container into something more. All levels of experience welcome.
