Pots That Pour: Exploring the Pouring Vessel w/ Sarah Wells Rolland
Making Pots that Pour is more complicated than one might think but they are such a joy to make, use and see. These pots require balance, proportion and functionality. In this class we will explore traditional pouring vessels and contemporary. We will make pitchers with different forms, spouts, handles, foundations and rims treatments.
Sarah is known for her unique pouring vessels and has made pouring vessels for over thirty years. She says she still “remains completely enamored with all pots that pour”.
We will be inspired by several daily slide presentations of many different types of pouring vessels created by master potters around the world.
Demonstrations will begin every day at 9 am. Sarah will work with you individually until 3 pm. The studio will be open until 6 pm each day.
Students will purchase clay directly from the Village Potters Clay Center, a Laguna Clay Supplier, the week of the workshop.
Open studio hours will be from 3-5pm each day.
Several weeks before the workshop you will receive the details of what to expect, what to bring, materials list, and directions to the studio.
Sarah’s teaching always includes skill building techniques. Though this class is not for beginners, seasoned beginners can participate. See skill level description below.
