All About Mugs
We will focus on the meaning of creating a “good mug” by examining mugs you have made in the past or mugs that you use everyday from your cupboard. YES! Bring a couple to class with you for our opening discussion. We will question the functional and decorative qualities of a simple everyday object. Using historic pottery and various artists as reference points to examine why various cultures developed a particular form, we will thoroughly investigate the drinking vessel. All of this conversation will be embedded into our making, informing our process. The mug/s you make this weekend will be well considered. Students will leave with a heightened sense of awareness for creating not just good ceramics but creating comfort.
November 25 - 26, 2 - 5 pm each day.
