Description: This course will focus on mug making with an emphasis on exploring unique and unusual mug forms. Students will explore mug making in a more whimsical and abstract manner that focuses on form, texture, and surface design. Using elements of the wheel as well as handbuilding, students are encouraged to explore using molds, experimenting with colored slips, underglazes, and glazing techniques. This course will bring the traditional potter out of their comfort zone and encourage them to play. Age 18+.
This course is suitable for: Intermediate and advanced students
Recommended prerequisite classes: At least one Introduction to Wheel Throwing class (the more experience, the better)
