Pottery 2

This class focuses on techniques to improve your wheel work, throw taller, thinner, and with more control. Learn to use potter’s ribs for shaping and understand and master better trimming skills. A variety of forms will be demonstrated, including bowls, plates, pouring spouts, lids, and teapots; glazing and decorating will also be covered. Constructive critiques of finished work will help hone skills and refine techniques. Although mostly geared toward wheel work, hand builders are welcome. Pottery 1 or prior clay experience highly recommended.

Lee is a lifetime studio potter with a love for clay, glass, and fire. He owns a studio and gallery in Newport where he sells to tourists and local fans alike. His classes are full of tips built from long experience and he enjoys helping students refine both skills and aesthetics.
