38 Luxuriating in Form and Surface
Gay Smith 
September 18th - October 1st,  2011
Throwing and soda firing. For all


In this workshop, we gather in gorgeous Tuscany to explore form and surface, slips and glazes responsive to the enhancing effects of firing in a soda kiln. Particular emphasis will be on the development of each individual’s personal skills and aesthetic by paying enjoyable attention to our responses to our luscious surroundings. We will work with the exciting and easily utilized possibilities offered by altering the forms and surfaces of freshly thrown pots. Discussions will cover whatever is of interest, and include aesthetics, firing a soda kiln, raw glazing, and single firing.

Cost 1.700  It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials, firings and side trips
