Ceramics: Altered Forms

In this class, students will be introduced to making a variety of altered thrown forms and will learn how to alter right off the potter’s wheel to create one-of-a-kind forms. Demonstrations will include a teapot with spout and vase, or a utilitarian object of choice. Students will focus on what type of form they want to achieve for the semester. Class is designed for intermediate or advanced students.

Please note: this is an 8-session course. Fleisher will be closed on January 16 and February 20 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and President’s Day.
