The first 5 minutes of class you will enjoy your drink and light snack while I give you a brief tour of my studio. For the first hour, you will learn the basics of throwing on a pottery wheel. You will have a seat at the wheel and I will coach you through creating your first piece! Some first time ideas include mug, candle votive, or a ramen bowl. For the second hour of class you will glaze a bone dry piece using underglaze! I will teach you the basic principles of glazing and how to use underglaze, overglaze and specialty glazes. At the end of class you should have at least one piece you created on the wheel and one piece which you have glazed.
I'm a local artist born and raised in Austin, Texas. I founded Gemini Theory, an online shop which focuses sustainability, vintage and ceramics. I started working with clay eight years ago and have no intention of ever giving it up! I have just moved back to Austin from Sydney, Australia where I lived for three years working as a ceramic artist and photographer.
