Used for millennia to store and transport goods, age and ferment food and drink, and show off social status, the jar is synonymous with pottery and its rich history. In this workshop students will use the potters wheel to throw a form, learn how to throw a lid, how to trim both, use texture or color to decorate, and in the final session how to glaze the jar so it’s visually appealing and functional. Combining these techniques participants will create their own jar to use in the home, or simply admire.

Some experience on the wheel is recommended.

Instructor Bio:

Sam Deering is a functional and sculptural potter, originally from Kentucky. Sam trained and worked in ceramics for years in Virginia and recently relocated to the hills of southwest NH. He makes a wide variety of ceramic forms for a variety of uses – everything from cups and bowls and decorative masks, to massive bottles and vessels for ikebana flower arranging.

He loves sharing what he’s learned and cultivates a relaxed classroom environment where everyone can feel comfortable growing their skills and working with clay.
