This 2 day weekend workshop will cover all things form and surface with two amazing rock star potters. On the first day Maggie and Melissa will demo and discuss many ways to make forms from Kurinuki to wheel thrown pots. Extra attention and time will be spent on handles, how to make them and how they relate to the pot. On day 2, Maggie and Melissa will demo and cover many different types of surface techniques and how they relate to form. Both days will allow time for participants to thoughtfully practice and work on techniques illustrated by the teachers and get feedback from the teachers. Form and surface and the tension between the two can make or break a pot. This workshop is for those who want to increase their awareness of techniques and be more thoughtful of when and how to use them in the dialogue between form and surface.
