The cosmic energy moving through a wood-kiln is recorded on the clay pieces loaded between firebox and chimney.
This class will consider different forms and how they will respond to that environment in the kiln. We will be seeking a balance between controlling the outcome of the work and allowing the kiln to add it’s own mark.
Unconventional Throwing – For Intermediate and Advanced Students
Sept 14th – Nov. 2nd, 2016
2:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Instructor: Jordan Becker
What happens on the potters wheel when you throw the foot and trim the rim? When you open the clay to the wheel head? Throw with uncentered clay?
When potters step out of their comfort zone, inspiration and new ideas bloom. This class will break the rules that taught you how to make a perfect cylinder and discover the raw and organic quality of clay.
This class is for Intermediate and Advanced Students.
