The possibilities are endless when you're hand building. This class covers four different building methods and also ways to utilize templates and texture. We'll start with a fun project making a face jug (or other sculpture) out of pinch pots. Next, working with soft slabs to make functional pieces like planters and bowls and then onto learning about leather hard slabs for more architectural sculpting. We'll use the extruder for coil pot building, and also to make our own texture tools. We'll talk about how to make and use templates to be able to make multiples of the same item or to make pieces with multiple parts that work together (like a lid on a box, a nesting set, or something that is sized to hold a specific item).
By the end of the session you'll be combining all of these methods to make one of a kind sculptures and funky functional work.
