From ergonomics to proportion and well beyond…to get us started we will look at a slide show of historic and contemporary works to handling of actual pots, viewing them from a standpoint of design and utility. Examination will be complemented with a series of hands on exercises that explore basic design principles that can be applied to your work. Fundamentals of pottery form, such a rims, lips, feet, handles will be presented through demonstration.
