Workshop Description:

Thrown, Altered, and Decorated

This workshop will address ways to create pots that have a generous sense of volume and fluidity of line, with wheel thrown and altered porcelain. Lorna’s vocabulary of forms range from pots for daily use to atypical forms such as watering cans, and spoons. Demonstrations will include altering pots on and off the wheel, in addition to using drawn patterns to hand build spouts and handles. Surface treatment demonstrations will consist of slip inlay, and glaze decoration using wax and latex.
