Often getting started is the most daunting part of any personal artistic expression. Express yourself and find your voice through the form and medium of functional pottery. Accentuate that expression through decoration, while embracing play, process and practice. Lisa will cover, in depth, her characteristic soft-slab construction, slip application (wet brush, dry brush, etc.) and finally, decoration including mark-making as well as the use and placement of images on pots. Learn to design darts so that cutting and mending yields personal forms, a fine tool to have in any handbuilder’s or thrower’s practice. Engaging conversations around cultivating creativity are bound to ensue.
