Gay Smith Workshop

Working Wet - 2005

Gay Smith will demonstrate ways of altering the form and surface of freshly thrown pots. Pots made in this way can look spontaneous and animated, reflecting the process of working with wet clay. Porcelain clay will be used in the demonstration, but these techniques may be used just as well with stoneware and earthenware. Squaring, ovaling, fluting, and faceting will be shown. And finishing the pots will include trimming, cutting, and adding feet and handles. Gay will also show slides.
