This class is designed for beginner and advanced students alike, looking to expand their vocabulary of form and surface through alternative hand building methods. Participants will design, construct and use molds and low relief stencils to create pots with generous playful volumes with crisp low relief surface design. Chris will share his building techniques that utilize the different stages of clay from soft to leather hard, as well as discuss his philosophies of making and studio practice. Topics to be covered include, the relationship of form and surface, considering function vs. utility and generating interest through contrast. Students will leave with new information and techniques to take back to their own studios.
