Pottery by Design

Presented By Daniel Vito​
What is a good pot? Is it an objective or subjective Decision?

Daniel Vito will discuss 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.

This workshop is demonstration and discussion based. Hands on practice is not included.

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.

There will be demonstrations, discussion and sketching.  If you have a sketch book please bring it.

July 23, 1:30 p.m.
