Spend two days immersed in creating unique, personal statement pieces through carving and manipulating clay forms. Learn new tricks for quick drying your work We will throw or hand build to create forms then put them together while adding clay lovingly and then…. begin carving. Bob will bring lots of different carving tools some familiar, some unfamiliar. We will work the surface of the piece and push our ideas further. We will discuss the process and let the muse take us where it may while we discover the sensuous relaxing joy of carving. We will have lots of conversations about carving, creativity and what guides each of us to create. Bob says, “It has been my experience over 32 years and the experience of many others that carving is the most relaxing enjoyable part of the clay experience”. Some clay experience working on the wheel and hand building is recommended. Clay will be provided.
