18 Clay Cooking Pots
From the Kitchen to the Table

Robbie Lobell
May 1st - 15th, 2011  
Throwing and handbuilding. For all


This fully hands-on workshop in glorious springtime Tuscany introduces participants to high-fire flameware for making clay cooking pots.  We will explore the utilitarian necessities of a clay cooking pot for use in the oven and broiler, on the stovetop or grill; and the many aesthetic considerations for a beautiful pot presented directly to the table from the kitchen. 

Casseroles, broilers, bakers, roasters, teakettles, skillets, saucepots, oven/pizza stones, trivets (and more) are all possible forms that may be investigated.  Demonstrations, hands-on practice, and lively discussion will give participants a solid foundation for working with flameware and for ideas to take shape in the form of handmade pots for the delicious foods of Tuscany and beyond  -- to slow food & a healthy world.

We will make cooking pots and fire those flameware pots in the soda kiln.
There will be a cooking class for all participants, to experiment with flameware casseroles and Tuscan ingredients.  We will fully experience our surroundings as we taste local wines & olive oil & chocolate, take a tour to an organic far, shop small markets in San Gimignano & local hill towns, partake in deliciously prepared meals . . . all in beautiful & bountiful Tuscany!



Cost € 1.800  It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials, firings and side trips
