Big Pots Through History

TBS Classes2022 BigPots BryceWalton 1800x700

This 5 day, hands on intensive workshop will explore the art and history of making “BIG POTS”. Kate will teach a physically accessible large pot making process with roots in ancient Thailand. Students of all skill levels will learn to work with 50+ lbs of clay to build and decorate their own big pieces. Along with helping students during the large jar making process, Bryce will be presenting demonstrations on the wheel, as well as slide lectures about Ceramic History, Interpreting Form and Evaluating Function and cultural context to the making of large scale forms in ceramics. Students will see form, function, and surface treatment giving them inspiration for their own pieces.
