Thrown Altered Basket

I love making these wheel-thrown baskets. In this class we will use throwing and slab building techniques to create composite altered baskets. This is a great way to experiment with size, shape, and altering a thrown form. With these skills you’ll be able to create many different altered basket and bowl shapes.
