Wed AM Wheel Projects with Valerie
For students with 6+ months experience, Valerie’s wheel class will focus on making cool functional & decorative vessels. We are going to throw and alter a cylinder (teapot or pitcher), bowl, platter, and vase; focusing on even-walled throws, moisture management, and personalizing our work. We also explore thrown-n-altered forms that are cut and/or re-assembled in unique ways! Past projects have included set of small dishes, dessert tray with handle, bowl with cut handles, stacked containers. Bring ideas & pictures to the first day of class! Higher Fire offers a variety of clays, 30 gorgeous food-safe glazes, and consistent firings in our 40 cu ft Bailey Gas Kilns. Classroom includes electric wheels, slab-roller, extruder, and more.
