10 Focusing on Form ... Making Personal Pots for Food
Jan Edwards - www.clayjan.com
March 3rd - 16th, 2013

Handbuilding and throwing.
Intermediate and advanced



This two week, intensive workshop will focus on designing and making pots especially for the table
- Custom Dinnerware and Serving Dishes -
pots that enhance the pleasure of preparing, serving and eating food. What better place to explore this subject than Italy, a country known for its passion about Food and Art?
In this fine ceramics facility, in the heart of Tuscany, we'll make pots on the wheel and / or by hand. The focus will be on designing for use, forming good, practical pots, pots that are made to support the way YOU like to eat. We will also explore a cornucopia of techniques for embellishing what we make. We will be working with traditional Mediterranean materials...
Terra cotta clay, colored slips, stains and a clear glaze. Surface decoration techniques will be a part of what we explore. We can draw upon the gorgeous, classic Tuscan landscape surrounding La Meridiana Studio & the wonderful food there, for inspiration.
