Mugs from the Robust to the Delicate NEW
Instructor: Noel Bailey
Grounded, substantive mugs insulate contents, exude durability and stability. Thin, delicate mugs suggest elegance, effortless lift, and visually float. In this one-day workshop we’ll trim, stamp, dart, alter and handle leather hard vessels of a variety of shapes. Through each form, we’ll assess their parameters of function, aesthetics, and general character. Students are encouraged to bring in a mug (or image there-of) for a show and tell discussion, as well as soft leather-hard vessels for hands-on work during afternoon open studio. Students can buy clay as needed.
Sat, March 21, 9-noon will be demonstrations and discussion and from 1-4 will be hands on.
