Working in clay is deeply satisfying, and making pottery allows one to explore aesthetics and function simultaneously. In this workshop we will make two vases from start to finish, using porcelain as our clay material. We will use the handbuilding technique of slabs, piecing them together to form our vases. We may even add a handle to transform a vase into a mug or small pitcher! To finish, we will embellish our work with surface decoration using texturing techniques and brushwork. The vessels will then be fired with a clear glaze to protect the surface and make them functional.
