LANDSCAPE BOWLS


Allan Douglas will show you his Landscape Bowl design. If you bring your own soft leather hard bowl and your favorite carving tool (Some tools will be available on site for purchase), you can join in, but it's not required. 


KILN MAINTENANCE

Matt Hoogland will teach us the basics of caring for your kiln. If you have your own a kiln or want one, come on down.

FLAMEWARE (UPDATE! 1 session only!)


In this demonstration workshop participants will be given recipes for flameware clay bodies, and learn all of the do's and don'ts it took Shawn years to learn the hard way. Shawn will prove his clays versatility by cooking on his Flameware during the workshop. Shawn will demonstrate a frying pan with cool to the touch handle, and a larger dutch oven. A big supporter of function first in all pottery, Shawn will also give great tips for making all of your work better to fit its specific function.

Drinking Vessels (NEW! 1 Session only!)


Shawn will demonstrate his signature flasks, bourbon tumblers, tea bowls, "pint glasses" and bottles.  This demonstration workshop will also be focused on how to better your wheel throwing, and make your pieces better in every way.  We will focus on the why we make things the way we do to better support the function of the piece.

"Functional ceramics we use in our daily lives are the most important ceramic pieces in my opinion" Shawn Felts
