Workshop Description: The workshop will be our approach to making studio =
pottery as a full time livelihood. We make cups, jugs, t-pots, =
casseroles, ewers, vases, plates and bowls. Most of our pots are made in =
sections to take the effort out of using large pieces of clay. You will =
learn to double or triple the size of the pots you are currently making. =
We will also demonstrate hand formed beaks, spouts, and there is a =
special emphasis on handles. Tony will pay a lot of attention to the =
hand pulled handle and lug. Sheila will demonstrate handmade cane and =
reed handles for t-pots and baskets. The techniques that we will =
demonstrate are designed for wheel workers. The wheel will also be used =
as a slab roller and extruder. Our own work has focused on woodfired and =
carbon trap shino glazed stoneware. Woodfire and shino are not the =
marketplaces favorite surfaces. In spite of that we make a living from =
our work. We hope to show you that it just might be that the work is =
