What I love about slabs is that there are so many things you can do with them—even with no experience and a minimum of equipment. Slab rollers are wonderful, of course, but a rolling pin and two pieces of wood work well, too. Anybody can make, shape, drape, pierce, texture, and combine slabs without the long learning curve of wheel throwing and with no special equipment.

Slabs offer creative and experimental possibilities for objects both sculptural and functional, and the student can choose either or both. Pieces can be delicate or monumental, relief or three dimensional, simple or complex, figurative or abstract, pressed into bowls or other molds, and used in combination with throwing or other techniques. This workshop is suitable for all levels of expertise—or lack thereof.
