Discover the idiosyncrasies of working with porcelain on and off the wheel! In this hands-on workshop, Martha Grover  will share her special throwing and altering techniques that exploit this elegant and sensuous material’s best qualities.Working with a variety of bottomless wheel-thrown forms and slabs in both the soft and leather-hard stages, Martha will demonstrate various altering techniques and additions of slabs, handles, and spouts to create an assortment of functional forms. Forms will include cups, bowls, vases, pitchers, lidded forms, and baskets. Crack repair and mending techniques will be addressed, as well as the use of a spray gun for glaze application. Martha will also discuss her sources of inspiration, philosophy of making, and studio practices. This is a hands-on workshop and students will make their own flowing pots.

This workshop is best suited for those able to easily center on the wheel and be able to throw a 3-4″ cylinder. Martha will be able to tailor many of the throwing techniques for students that only hand build.

Please purchase Frost clay prior to the class.
