Pottery

Pottery

Do you aspire to be a potter?  We will be working either on the potter’s wheel or using hand-build methods to create.  These methods will include pinching, coiling and slab form techniques.  Students will create functional and non-functional pottery using stoneware and porcelain clays.  The firing will be done using the electric and gas kilns.  Glazing will be done twice during the six weeks.  The glazing will be completed using the dipping, pouring and brushing techniques with stoneware glazes.

Fred Figueroa taught ceramics in the Clovis Unified School District for 42 years in the art department at the high school and middle school levels before retiring in 2014.  Now he’s back to share his expertise and love of creating pottery with YOU!

A supply list will be distributed the first night of class, and we will begin creating your wonderful works of art.

Class meets on Tuesdays 10/24-12/12 from 6:00-9:00pm, at Kastner Intermediate School, located at 7676 N.
