Building on the core skills introduced in Wheel I, the Wheel 1.5: The Next Steps strengthens the skills of wheel working while introducing the student to more forms and techniques on the potter's wheel. Decoration and glazing will be explored in greater detail, while the student gains greater confidence and control in their overall pottery making. Recommended for anyone who has taken Wheel 1 two times or more, and great stepping stone on to Wheel II: How to Make Better Pots.

    Artist Statement

  • I hand make my work from porcelain and stoneware clay. They are fired in a wood burning kiln in 14 to 18 hour firings. The glazes used are modern adaptations of ancient Asian recipes of celadon, shino, and tenmoku iron glazes, safe for use with food and beverages. It is a quietly contemplative, multi-stage process inspired by history, hard work, and the beauty of nature.
