Mid-Fire Handbuilding Pottery


Simple Handbuilding

Sessions are loosely structured and flexable. We start with a very short demonstration to show an example of how the project is built. The focus is " Hands On" so we move things right along. There are examples the item we will be making.

We use mid fire materials which fire to the hardness of functional ware. The finished piece is dish washer and food safe.
