Crafting Cups

What makes a cup a cup? What makes a cup a “good” cup? Why do we use some cups in our cabinet more often than others? This 5 week course will teach beginning wheel throwing and glazing skills by exploring these questions.  We will cover the entire process of making a wheel thrown ceramic cup, including design ideation, throwing, trimming, making handles, and surface decoration. By producing small, functional forms students will build confidence and proficiency in both craftspersonship and critical decision making. Ideally students will leave the class both with cups they enjoying using, and the ability to explain why they enjoy them. The pottery skills covered in this course will be applicable to forms other than cups, but by focusing on cups alone we will be able build on new skills rapidly in a short period of time. This class is designed for complete beginners, but intermediate potters may also find it useful.
