Thrown Ceramic Tree
In this class you will learn how to make a ceramic tree on the potter’s wheel. You will learn how to throw a closed form and carve a decorative branch system. I will also show you two ways to trim the foot of your tree. We will also alter a rib for more function and learn how to use a plastic cup as a trimming chuck. I am looking forward to seeing how you decorate and finish your ceramic tree.
