Faceted teapot set with Connie Christensen
This is a two weeks class with total viewing of four weeks.
Potters will learn how to throw a teapot, sugar bowls, a creamer, a lidded jar as well as a cup and saucer. They will learn how to make teapot spouts that will not drip after pouring tea. Connie shows various faceting techniques and demonstrates how to use wiggle-wire for decorating wheel thrown items.
She teaches how to make two different types of lids and demonstrates how to make a cane handle for the teapot. This is not a pre-made cane handle - students will learn how to use cane to make their own handles. Once you know how to do it, you can make handles for any other clay items.
Students will learn how to make a serving tray for the tea set by throwing the tray wall, altering it, attaching a slab bottom and adding handles.
