Lifting the Lid: The Inner Life of Jars

“A pot has form but its emptiness makes it useful.”

Let’s explore the mysterious inner life of jars! Jars surround us, yet their nuances and useful designs are easy to take for granted. With guided instruction, students will increase their precision with lidded forms by throwing multiple types of lids. To decorate, we will add attachments, playing with scale, surface decoration, and positive/negative space. Through crafting jars, we practice the valuable skill of shaping disparate fragments into a purposeful whole.

Level: Seasoned Beginner and Intermediate
Tuition: $310 + $55 Lab Fee
