Throwing Bigger Pots with Sarah Wells Rolland
Together we will explore forms that lend themselves to making a BIG presence.
Sarah loves to teach this workshop and has many previous students who now have big pots in their body of work. This workshop is challenging, fun and lively. We will be taking risks and loving it!
We will cover:
- Throwing with excellence
- Throwing in sections
- Throwing tall, throwing wide
- Creating forms to celebrate the join and forms with lines of integrity that completely loose the join
- Adding coils on the wheel to embellish your pots
- Explore textured slabs on thrown pieces
- Multiple approaches to joins
- Applying slip for texture and movement
We will discuss form, line, balance, proportion and originality as we design and create Bigger pots.
This throwing experience is designed for the potter that wants to push into new territory and expand their skill set. By the end of the week you will be an even better and a more passionate potter.
