Master potter, Danny Meisinger is coming to Higher Fire’s downtown studio at 499 S. Market St, San Jose for a 3-day hands-on workshop, PACKED with demonstrations, tips, and surface design techniques.  Danny’s ceramic art is featured in books and magazines, and his large-scale work is recognizable to potters everywhere: Danny served as the AMACO Brent “big pot wheel demonstrator” for years at NCECA showcasing his clay super-hero skills producing 100+ pound vessels with ease.

This workshop focuses on form development, learning to control the clay, and producing larger forms. Students work from small to medium-sized vessels (mugs, bowls, vases and jars) on up to larger sectional pieces. In addition to techniques for handling larger amounts of clay, Danny may present slip-texturing, carving, throwing/altering, and other surface treatments.

Throughout, students learn to break down processes needed to achieve their goals. Danny emphasizes the importance of careful observation, and an ability to see your piece’s actual shape and line as essential to arriving at the envisioned, final form.

Danny will also have handmade tools and pots available for sale.

Tuition includes your first 25lbs of clay, coffee/tea/breakfast each day.

Friday – Sunday, Aug 23-25, 10am-5pm
