No class Tuesday, December 26th

Vessels used for pouring run the gamut from cream pitchers and gravy boats to ewers, chocolate pots and watering cans. In this earthenware handbuilding class, we'll cover the basic functionality of anything that pours and the roles of the handle and pour spout. We'll also address the making of the simple cup from the shape and appearance of the body to the comfortable grasp of handles-- or lack thereof. This is an intermediate/advanced class. Previous clay experience is required.
