Wed AM Wheel Projects with Dan

Higher Fire owner, Dan Dermer, teaches a 6-week projects class on wheel-thrown vessels for drinking & serving: mugs with pulled handles, two kinds of serving platters, a darted pitcher, covered jar or casserole, and more. What would you like to make? Bring ideas to the first day of class…!  We’ll explore textured surfaces with stamped and slipped patterns; we’ll build skills in raising better cylinders and adding more refined handles. In weeks 5-6, students learn about spray-glazing and experiment with layered glaze combinations. Students should have 6+ months experience making pottery on the wheel.

Wednesdays, 10am-1pm, May 1 to June 5

Enjoy one scheduled 3-hour class per week, open studio time, choice of clays sold separately, gorgeous food-safe glazes, and consistent firings in our Bailey gas kilns.

Class takes place at JTown Clay — 520 N 7th St., San Jose, CA 95112.
