In Impossible Vessel, students will learn handbuilding and detailed underglaze/glazing techniques to defy the expectations of what a pot or vessel can or cannot do; alluding to functionality while playing in the world of sculpture. The course will also explore ceramic’s history from the utilized vessel to the purely ornamental art object. This class is for beginners to intermediate level makers.
