Enrol in Pottery - Composite Construction & Complex Handles
Course Code: ARTS2456
This course is not suitable for beginners.
With a focus on larger than life utilitarian pottery for occasional use, attention will be directed toward details on large casseroles, pitchers, bowls, baskets, and plates so they may be used for celebration and presentation. Sectional or composite construction, where many thrown and hand built pieces are added together to form one vessel, and complex handle forming methods will be explored. Time will allow for assembly as well as surface decoration. Expect to be making work at least two to three times larger than most standard sized utilitarian pieces. Maker's marks and details of process will be the hallmark of finished work. A visual presentation regarding production work will inform discussion and you're invited to bring one of your favourite pieces for critique within the group.
