This is a workshop fit for beginner to experienced makers who wish to expand their pottery vocabulary. We will focus in on designing and making various types of cups for specific use. The relationship between form and surface decoration will be explored through practice, demonstration and discussion. Doug will share his methodologies on carving and inlaying slip into leather hard clay and bisque fired clay. We will discuss the meaning and intention behind the pots we make and look to “play” as a way to explore new ideas. This class will provide an array of tools and techniques for using texture, line, and color in your work as well. Taking your ideas and concepts to the next level can be tricky, together we can share our experiences and help push each other to develop our work beyond our expectations.
