In this workshop, we will create molds to be used in combination with wheel thrown and handbuilt forms made out of clay. By using press molds made of plaster, the wheel will then be used as a tool to assemble the pieces. We will explore a variety of utilitarian forms, from cups to vases, and discuss how to use carving, inlay and terra sigillata as surface decoration to make each piece unique to the maker.
