This workshop will be dedicated to exploring the form of the cup as a vehicle for developing complex surfaces and storytelling. You will be introduced to various methods of applying texture, color, and composition to make dynamic and richly layered surfaces. These methods will be useful to the beginner as well as more experienced potter.    

The workshop is broken up across two weeks. Making will happen Saturday 3/4-Sunday 3/5 from 10am-2:30pm. Glazing is condensed into one day, Saturday 3/11 from 10am-4 pm.
