First Friday: Plates and Bowls

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

For the third First Friday meeting, we will be making small plates and bowls with slump molds. Plates and bowls are the workhorses of functional pots, useful while cooking, serving, eating, storing leftovers, and displaying. Plates can be at home on the wall functioning as a painting, or simply as an elegant frame for food.  We will learn to make good slabs that don't warp or crack, talk about all the things that can make good molds, and explore surface treatments.
