Tom Coleman: Introduction to Functional Ware (3 Workshop Videos)
Functional Ware 6/16, 6/23, 6/30
Details: One of the secrets to making great work in ceramics is to realize you're actually making work that showcases a glaze. In this series of 3 Workshops Tom covers a lot of information that's important to making functional pottery and why this is important to continue to pass the torch to others with correct information. Tom's outline for each workshop will include throwing, form and function. This includes information about clay bodies, bisque temperature, functional glazes and compatibility between the body and the glaze.

Live Zoom Workshops start at 10:00 am PST. We let people into the meeting at 9:45 am. Tom usually runs overtime until 12 noon PDT. Our Zooms are recorded and the link is sent to you later in the evening after zoom.

+Please have your sound "Muted." If not - we can all hear you. AND, you end up on the recording for everyone to hear until the end of time (lol). There is a Chat feature with Zoom. Write to us and I read the questions to Tom and Elaine so they can answer on Zoom.
+If you have your Audio On everyone in our community can see you. As the host I've seen some interesting things.. If you happen to see someone doing something "un-social" you can also choose not to watch them. Tom and Elaine and I apologize for anyone doing anything odd.. (I'm laughing-). On that note-
Please try to register the night before our Live Zoom if you want to attend in Live Zoom-time with us. Otherwise, we are busy getting ready for Zoom and it's difficult for us to get you the invitation on the morning of the event.
