Lidded Forms with Animal Inspired Decoration


During the workshop we’ll explore how to make boxes and lidded vessels that incorporate design elements inspired by animals and nature. Throughout the weekend we’ll practice wheel throwing and forming the vessels, then finish the pieces with surface decoration and sculpting animal motifs. Students will explore how to make their pieces stand apart from utilitarian jars and become reminiscent of urns and ceremonial vessels. In addition to creating thoughtful forms on the wheel, we’ll practice various mark making methods for decoration and basic sculpting techniques for animal forms. Students can bring their favorite tools for throwing, carving, and sculpting, along with a sketchbook. Advanced to Intermediate skill level.
