Can You Handle It? with Adrienne Eliades: October 24th, 10am-5pm
This workshop will improve students’ aesthetic sensibility to design and make ceramic mugs. A mug is an intimate object that can be for daily use or special rituals. We will consider balancing form and function to create your own dynamic mug design considering unity, balance and proportions ideal for beverage containment. Learn techniques to undertake the challenge of designing and forming handles that exist in perfect harmony with the body of the cup with intention and poise.
