Pottery by Design

Learn More and make better pots
What is a good pot? Is it an objective or subjective Decision?

Daniel Vito will discuss and and demonstrate approaches to pottery design, focusing on form and decoration. Participants should have intermediate to advanced skills and bring five pieces of their pottery, in any state: greenware, bisque or glaze fired.

The intended outcome of this workshop is for you to be better able to analyze pottery in general, your pottery in particular, build a vocabulary and rationale for critiquing your work and others, develop a clearer understanding of your own aesthetic, and find and express your own individual artistic voice.

Nobody makes a great pot every time, but that’s what we should be striving for.
