In this workshop Becca Floyd will present a variety of techniques for on-the- wheel altering, using simple and hollow forms. She will demonstrate how she creates interesting and innovative pots, with the understanding that all pots have a function for daily use and ritual. Becca will show attendees how to make altered work without tension, and how to use regular tools in novel ways. Expect lively discussions about what makes a pot work. Becca will demonstrate how she finishes with patterns and picture building, using stamps. There will also be a special session on how to throw handles, lugs, and animal forms to make your work strong, original, and interesting!

After graduating college Becca Floyd and her husband settled in Bryson City, NC where she found herself inspired by Western North Carolina’s rich story of ceramics and how it is applied in a contemporary way. Becca came to Asheville for a residency at Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts where she worked and learned from some of the best potters in the country. She has been a potter and teacher for over 20 years.
