Learn pottery how you want, when you want with a caring, supportive community. We have hundreds of classes to help you learn all aspects of pottery and ceramics. Wheel throwing, hand building, glazing, firing, surface decoration, and more. Learn to make pottery forms of all kinds like mugs, cups, vases, plates and platters, pitchers, teapots, and decorative ceramic sculpture. We also have live weekly pottery tutorials and exclusive virtual workshops with renowned ceramic artists and teachers.
This 2-week class, an extension of the first Whimsical Garden Stack class, focuses on
fish and flowers with an emphasis of how to form your pieces for successful glazing
and firing. Forms will be shaped using templates, slabs, hump/slump molds and
cutters from De La Designs. Maria will be using her favorite clay body, Timberline
Sculptural clay from Georgie’s Ceramic & Clay. Any groggy cone 6 clay body will work
for garden stacks. We will be using a variety of brand name, brush on cone 6 glazes
from Mayco, Amaco, Coyote and Georgie’s including the Interactive Pigments.
