Workshop Description:+

In this spirited and two day workshop, Julia will demonstrate a variety of throwing and hand building techniques to make pitchers, teapots, cups, cream & sugar sets, and more. She will demonstrate developing forms through combining wheel thrown and hand built parts.

In addition, Julia will discuss surface decoration, and the relationship between surface and form. She will demonstrate different slip applications and talk about her investigation of cone six glazes.
Julia will also show images of historical and contemporary slides as a way to examine what makes a piece of pottery “work”,  and how we can all make our pots better.

Julia can also discuss the history of pottery, soda and salt firing, glazing at a mid-range, and professional practices upon request.

+If you plan on attending the demonstration workshop, also plan on attending the Friday night slide lecture to have the best experience.
