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.
Tripod mugs are such a fun and simple way to make a pottery mug because there is no bottom! Well, yes there is, but you don’t need to make a separate one and I’ll show you how it’s done. Oh, and this project also makes a great planter too.
