WHAT IS CLAY HANDBUILDING?

"Handbuilding" is working with clay by hand using your hands and simple tools, not the pottery wheel. This older form of working with pottery creates organic forms that truly show craftsmanship with their non-symmetric beauty. A few most common forms of creating hand built techniques include pinchpot, coiling building and slab techniques.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH CLAY?

The more appropriate question here is can't be done with clay!? We've seen our patrons make amazing creations from functional dishes with very specific purposed (proposal ring vessels, custom shaving cream holders, and more!) and decorative pieces such as jewelry and planters.
