This workshop will use techniques to guide you on wheel-throwing forms in porcelain that are larger than the maximum weight of clay you can throw in one go. It will encourage you to evolve your creativity using the wheel as a tool to make both functional and sculptural shapes.

Based on Jo Davies’ practice of working with wheel-thrown porcelain components and hollow forms to create large and/or unusually shaped vessels this workshop will use these techniques to guide you on how to create forms that are larger than the maximum weight of clay that you can throw in one go. This will involve throwing smaller pieces that can then be constructed into a larger form. It will encourage you to start to evolve your creativity using the wheel as a tool to make either functional and sculptural shapes using porcelain. By the end of the workshop you will have a grounding of skills to continue to make large vessels or sculpture and have at least one item finished and ready for firing. Jo will offer a format based on vessel shapes for you to follow but if there is a specific shape you would like to consider, along the lines of the workshop, then there is room for this in the class but please get in touch with Jo Davies well ahead of the class.
