Course Description

Join Lisa in July to make Animal Cups! Beginners through advanced makers are welcome. Choose the animal(s) that resonate most dearly with you, and create slab-built cups featuring them (most people make two). Whether it’s your own pet, your spirit-animal or one you’ve imagined, we’ll each focus our making on our own creatures. Starting with simple, hand-rolled cylinders made from Lisa’s custom earthenware, we’ll create the cups. Then we’ll draw our narratives on the surface, push out the creatures from the slabs and sculpt details and features. To decorate them we’ll use slip, underglazes and sgrafitto. Lisa will bisque fire, glaze and then glaze-fire them to a finished, usable state. Participants will be notified when their pieces can be picked up (w/in a few weeks). Those living at a distance will have their cups shipped at cost. Fee of $450 includes all materials and firing.
