Flat / Form / Function / Handbuilding Functional Pots

In this workshop we will cover how to hand build functional pots which have good form, function well, and have a sensitivity to the human touch as well as other senses. We will primarily use soft slabs.

Demonstrations will include forming techniques that use circular and rectangular templates, and the method of making various parts fit together. Through making and combining cylindrical and conical parts, cutting darts and pinching, a variety of forms will be shown. Alternate ways of treating the bottom of a pot with regard to added feet or foot rings will be included, as well as various types of handles made from slabs and coils. How to arrive at accurate templates will also be discussed. Good craftsmanship is important, so there will be much attention paid to detail and finishing touches.       www.sandiandneil.com
