Low-Fire Handbuilding Pottery

 

Simple Handbuilding

Sessions are loosely structured and flexable. We start with a very short demonstration to show the basic tips and techniques of handbuilding with clay. The focus is " Hands On" so we move things right along.

 

 

Wheel Throwing class

Examples are displayed of the types of things that can be made.

These projects are built using slump, hump or press molds. The first step is for everyone to chose a mold to work from.

Slabs are made out of raw clay using a slab roller.

The slab is shaped with the mold and embellished with our large selection of stamps, sprigs and carving tools. Next, it is decorated by painting with colored slips.

Later, after it has a chance to dry, we put clear glaze on it and fire it for you. It is ready for pick up in two to four weeks.

The Gallery at LampLight Studio is also available for your social gathering. It makes a lovely space to relax and enjoy refreshments if you wish to bring them. Gathering a group of coworkers to play with clay is a passive form of team building.
