Put your pots on a diet during this afternoon dedicated to discussion and techniques on throwing lighter, more balanced pots - indulge yourself without the sacrifice!

There are always things we can improve in our pots, our process, and our technique, and this workshop will hit on several ways to achieve pots with sensible weight, balance and scale. 

Beginner to advanced; hands-on wheel throwing techniques.

Tyler’s functional ceramics are exhibited internationally in group and juried exhibitions.  His current work follows the tradition of salt firing, in combination with the more contemporary process of soda firing, capitalizing on the unique color and surface variations that are a natural product of the process.
