SaturClay Cub: Covered Pots

  • Alto Clay Works 595 Main Street Alto Pass, IL 62905 (map)

This Saturday we will stretch a little and make covered boxes with soft slabs. This is a bit of an advanced technique, but it lends itself to making pots quickly and with a fresh, intuitive approach. Imagine working with clay as if it were fabric! Your covered box can be used to hold little treats such as nuts or candies, as a jewelry box, a salt cellar, or just to hold something important. We will learn how to roll out a good slab of clay, and build with it while it is still very soft. We will also explore surface treatments such as stamping, painting with slip, and incising.
