Session 8: Inside and Out

No Skills Required
July 29 - August 2, 2024

Inside and Out

Explore one of the most powerful aspects of vessel-making: the relationship between interior and exterior space. An introverted design process turns inward to sculpt volume using the materiality of clay, drawing on the poetics of form to voice personal experience that resounds with universal human sensation. We will use innovative throwing and hand building processes, including double-walled throwing and openwork, to build space that unifies form and surface, interior and exterior.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $125-150. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop. Additional firing fees may apply. Additional clay is available for purchase.
