Creating Clay Forms in Earthenware

Winter 2019/2020 / Ceramic Arts

This adventure starts out by exploring basic pinch, coil and pinch-strip constructions then moves onto building with slabs.  We’ll learn how to form CUTE-sies, use the pinch-strips method of construction to form vases & bowls then use templates to construct cups, boxes and foam-pressed trays.  By creating our own patterns and textures on the clay surface, it’s a breeze to build pieces which are truly our own. Colorful surface enhancements using engobes, terra sigillata, under glazes and specialty low fire glazes are also an integral part of this experience.

I started my own venture in clay 30 years ago and soon grew to be identified by my hand built whimsical pots. Today I am a Teaching Clay Artist and self proclaimed Claysmith, hand forming earthenware and stoneware into whatever it wants to be.
