"Stack 'Em Up"

     with Steve Loucks

      Dive deep into structure, embellishment, and style. Make

      complex, multi-sectional vessels from simple, wheel-

      thrown parts. Learn to dart, stretch, alter, and embellish.

      Stack and assemble the sections to make pedestalled

      forms, vases, pitchers, and candlesticks. Enhance your

      pieces with carvings, sprigs, lids and/or handles, and

      glazes. Fire pieces you complete early in the week in the

      electric kiln while we continue to create more work. Be

      prepared to transport some unfired pieces.
