2018 pottery on the wheel

This class will concentrate on learning the skills needed to become comfortable working on the wheel. Each week’s class period will concentrate on specific skills, such as throwing consistent shapes, trimming a foot, forming and attaching handles, and more. There will be demonstrations and help with each skill. In-class videos and other resources will also be used to broaden understanding of other potters’ techniques and approaches to their craft. We will discuss what makes a good pot.  25# of clay, glazes, firing, and open studio are included. Extra clay will be available for purchase.

John Huston will be Potter-in-Residence all summer at Thoreson Farm. John has been a potter for more than 35 years and has lived and worked in Ohio, Indiana, and Japan. He works in his home studio overlooking Sanford Lake in Benzie County. John and his wife Amy Stevens own and operate Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor.
