Students will advance their potter’s wheel skills as well as create personalized hand-built, food-safe serving pieces. Review centering clay on the wheel, explore straight and rounded forms, fitted lids, and unique decorative surface treatments. Challenge yourself with larger shapes by attaching bats to the wheel and combining multiple techniques to individualize your projects. Students should have both clay and glazing experience.
