In this class students will explore thrown forms that are then altered to give the piece a unique and more handmade touch/feel. Students will learn about darting, faceting, altering rims and feet, etc.
Methods of throwing, trimming, and a variety of finishing techniques will be discussed. Students will be able to create pieces with their own style and work with the instructor to create truly one of a kind thrown vessels. Success of this class is dependent on outside course work.
