June 16th - 29th, 2013

Handbuilding. For all



Handbuilding forms from Galestro, a Tuscan Terra Cotta clay, perfectly suited for outdoor pieces will be the focus of this class. We will explore various hand building methods to make figurative forms, large bas relief tiles, and/ or personal interpretations of open forms for planters. Techniques included will be slab and coil building and developing skills for bas relief carving and sculpting, versatile ways for both artistic expression and functional projects. Surrounded by a world of sculpture, flowers, and terra cotta we will be easily inspired to creative ideas.
