Gestural Throwing/Atmospheric Effects for Electric with Steven Hill

September 30th – October 5th 
10 am – Noon and 1 pm – 5 pm
Levels: All

This workshop is structured for the potter with basic throwing skills, who would like to make relaxed forms that feel more gestural. We will start with drinking vessels and bowls before moving on to larger and slightly more complex forms. When glazing Steven will address ways to achieve the kind of richness and surface variation in electric kilns that potters have come to associate with reduction firing. The goal is not to imitate reduction, but to set the stage so that multiple layered glazes can interact with each other in the firing. The basic techniques of spraying and the more advanced theories of layering and blending glazes will be addressed.
