Are you interested in creating Sake' bottle, jugs, growlers or lamp bases? This class will address the skills necessary to create a successful bottle form. We will discuss collaring, the transition from shoulder to neck and the use of ribs in creating the neck. In addition we will throw a "chuck" and introduce ways to eliminate the sometimes frustrating experience of trimming in a chuck. Please join me as we enter into the world of bottles!
