    In this class, students will learn about the properties of clay, and the techniques that make clay a useful medium to create functional as well as artistic forms fitting for everyday use. Techniques that will be primarily taught will include:• Additive pinch technique fit for forming vessels from coils of clay, blending them together for sound structural constructions.• Soft slab construction for forming objects out of thinly rolled sheets of clay that can be bent and stretched to the desired form.• Hard slab construction, where slabs are allowed to dry to be cut into exact shapes and joined together at the right time to allow the clay to securely bond together.• Pre-glaze decoration techniques suitable for the various stages in which the clay may be worked.• Introductory glazing and finishing techniques for functional and decorative work.Students completing the class should also obtain a firm basic grounding in not only methods for forming clay by hand, but also an introduction to the esthetics of form.Class cost includes materials. Finished work pick-up day will be within three weeks of the end of the class to allow for firing time.
