The Cup, the Bowl, and Beyond

The Kiln Studio and Gallery in Fairhope, Alabama will host a weekend workshop with Mary Louise Carter offering demonstrations and discussion of wheel-thrown functional forms. The workshop will begin with a slide presentation on Friday night and will continue with demonstrations and hands–on work on Saturday and Sunday.

Open to beginning through advanced level students, the workshop will offer participants an opportunity to further their throwing, trimming, and assembling abilities. Topics will include: discovering the complexity found in “simple” forms such as cups and bowls, bringing clarity and balance to complex composite pieces such as pitchers and teapots, the use of carving as surface embellishment and the search for the perfect handle.
