During this class, students will learn techniques that emphasize the creation of forms on the potter’s wheel; cups, bowls and plates by learning to throw, trim, alter, pull handles, and slip decoration. Students are encouraged to take additional classes to learn the art of glazing.
Your class fee provides one bag of clay, firing and glazing.
I was born and raised in the suburbs west of Philadelphia. As a kid I watched the sprawling population occupy the country, turning farms into strip malls and developments. I always sought refuge in whatever undisturbed forests I could find, splashing in creeks, picking wild raspberries, and discovering the myriad of creatures in the forest and under rocks. I never cared much for the classroom and struggled through grade school, although wildly excelling in art class and at recess! Once I was released from high school, I headed north to attend Marlboro College in southern Vermont. Avoiding math and science, I focused on pottery and other studio art courses. Exploring other outlets off campus for my curiosity of adventure, I developed a true love for whitewater kayaking and snowboarding. My love of nature grew into a true passion for horticulture and an endless fascination for the natural cycles of growing my own food. After college, the search for true wilderness and powder snow led me to the Rocky Mountains! Gathering inspiration from the endless beauty of the Teton wilderness, I am focusing on creating functional pottery to enhance everyday living and eating.
