Session 3: Continuing Wheel: Focus on Closed Forms, Thursday Mornings
Continuing Wheel: Focus on Closed Forms
In this class, we'll pull and collar-in our pots to make closed forms! Closed forms include narrow-necked shapes, such as jugs and bottles, as well as forms that are completely closed at the top. Completely closed forms can be altered in interesting ways--ribbed, pushed, and paddled from the outside while the air inside provides counter-pressure.
We'll explore closed forms as the starting point for a variety of functional and decorative pieces, including bottles, lidded boxes, juicers, salt shakers, teapots, butter dishes, double-walled bowls, and sculptural forms. Previous wheel experience is necessary.
