Form and Function

Take a journey of exploration and experimentation, creating and critiquing the functional cylinder in four sessions. We'll explore aesthetics, adaptation, and function, while expanding our own creative mojo.

Each two-hour session will involve an hour to an hour-and-a-half of throwing time within the day's assignment. During that hour we'll take a concept and throw several designs. The second part of the class will be spent studying our resulting forms and discussing what we see, how we interpret what each of us has made, and looking at what and why some forms are successful and how we might change those that are not.

You must be able to throw a successful cylinder for this class, though there is no minimum amount of clay specified in this prerequisite. (In other words, you can be successful with 1 lb. and still be an active participant in the class.)

Dates TBD, let us know if you are interested in this class-210-494-9100
