In this two-day workshop, Annie will lead participants through the process of creating their very own luminaries. Participants will spend the first day creating 2-3 pots to be carved, whether on the wheel or at the hand-building table. Extra attention will be paid to even wall thickness, forms that are best for pierced work, and best trimming practices. Annie will end the day demonstrating how she prepares her pots for carving and participants will do the same.
On the second day, Annie will demonstrate her piercing technique. Participants will spend the day carving simple designs first, then more complex and original patterns as their confidence grows.
Most participants will create 1-2 luminaries that are ready for the kiln. Many will have a luminary or two that they may continue carving and refining independently.
This workshop is for beginning to advanced participants who can throw or hand-build a cylinder 4” tall or larger. While many materials will be provided including a bag of B-Mix Cone 5, students are encouraged to bring throwing, hand-building, and trimming tools.Bisque firing is included for the pieces created in the workshop.
