In this course students will explore exciting ways to make their clay pots fresh and lively. Altering with freshly thrown clay can add interest to any form. We will look at how to texture surfaces using faceting, carving, fluting, and impressing as well as how to shape pots into squares, ovals, triangles and make fitted lids. Finishing touches and attachments, like handles and feet, may enhance and complete our pots. Attention to the particular interests and the work of each individual will be emphasized. This class is open to novice and advanced potters ages 16+. Some wheel throwing experience is helpful, but not required. $140 Includes all supplies. Gunnison Arts Center Clay Studio. Instructor: Shannon Lowry.
