Wall-mounted Clay Bud Vase
6:00 PM-8:30 PM
Tower Hill Botanic Garden
11 French Drive
Boylston, MA 01505
Instructor: Becky O’Brien
Students will create their own piece of pottery starting with a raw piece of clay. The clay slab will be molded into a one of a kind bud vase for the wall by the students and designed using texture either by adding clay or sgraffito (scratching/scraping away). Once the sculptural component is complete, the students will then paint their piece using underglazes. The pieces are then brought back to the artist's studio where they are bisque fired, clear glazed and then fired again. Upon completion, the pieces can either be picked up at Tower Hill or the artist studio in West Boylston. The ceramic process can take between 4-6 weeks, sometimes much less.
