This is a three-day class where the student will make two projects. One will be a large 14 inch platter where special techniques are needed. Like bubble control, gravity volume control and devitrification. The second piece will be a 7 inch by 15 inch in size but is 1/2 inch thick, which will require special layering to create visual depth. It will be constructed with dams for volume control. Both of these projects will require special complex firing schedules which are required for large or thick projects. The instructor will demonstrate and have the students perform simple, but effective techniques, for preparing the bending mold which will provide a very smooth finish to the back side.
