The Teapot


Learn the basics of making one of the most interesting forms in pottery: the teapot. Each week will focus on a specific element, such as form, spout, handle, and so forth. After forming the components, explore how everything comes together to make a beautiful, ergonomic teapot. Students must have experience in wheel throwing. Please contact the office if you're unsure if this class is appropriate for your skill level.
