Jan Term The Spirit of Clay Micaceous Pottery G220113
The rich earth of this mysterious and sacred landscape is the starting point for this class–the brilliant geological formations, the earth’s clay, the yucca paintbrush. After thanking the earth and gathering the clay, in The Spirit of Clay Micaceous Pottery you will learn how to prepare it and coil it into pots, then fire your pots in ways traditional to the Pueblo potter. Join in the rare opportunity to experience the potter’s relationship to the earth, which is rooted in respecting and honoring the earth, and carry the earth of northern New Mexico back to your homes as micaceous pots. Other clay and pottery building and finishing methods will also be explored.
