Teaching: Penland School of Crafts

August 12 - August 26

Courtney Martin & Melissa Weiss
Viva Handbuilding!

Students will start by making custom bisque molds and using them to make dishes. Then we’ll carve pots out of solid chunks of iron-rich stoneware clay in the kurinuki tradition, and we’ll handbuild platters and trays. We’ll add and subtract to enhance our forms: handles, feet, and cut outs. With a variety of resists, glazes, and oxides, we’ll explore pattern and surface on the vessels. We’ll fire to cone 10 in a reduction gas kiln and a salt kiln.  All levels.
