In this workshop we will explore shapes that work in a wood firing—pots that catch ash and deflect flame.  We’ll throw and alter tea bowls and bottles and throw larger forms in sections.  Participants are asked to bring a pot that inspires them (or a picture of one), and a poem to share during tea.  

Workshop participants should also plan to participate in group discussions, bring a bag lunch, and a sketchbook.  Students will be contacted when pots made are bisque fired and ready for pick-up.
