Make your own Tree in time for the Holidays

Saturday November 16th 10-4pm

I have made several different variations of trees to light up my mantel, my holiday table, or my living room to bring extra light and spirit to the holidays.  We will construct up to three trees in this workshop through slab, pinch pot and/or coiling to get the results we want. We wills tart the morning picking out the technique we would like to use for constructing our trees, taking into consideration whether we want light to show through the trees, giving them a luminary effect.  We will use either porcelain or another clay body depending on whether we want to paint them with underglazes or whether we want to keep them white.  After a light lunch, we will continue constructing our trees, finishing with smoothing and under glazing them. Your piece(s) will go through a bisque firing and a glaze firing before pickup 2 weeks later.

Cost: $125 includes light lunch, materials and firing fees
