In this workshop, participants will create molds to be used in combination with wheel thrown and hand built forms made of clay. Using press molds made of wood and plaster, the wheel will be used as a tool to assemble the pieces. Participants will explore a variety of utilitarian forms, from cups to vases, and discuss how to use carving and inlay as surface decoration to make each piece unique.
