In this class we will get to know our clay a bit better, and learn how and when to attach handles. Explore other ways to construct pieces and sculptures using wheel thrown objects. We will tighten up our throwing and clay manipulation skills, and learn about the ins and outs of making commuter mugs and boxes.


CHRISTOPHER CISPER has been playing with clay for nearly four decades. He taught at the Mendocino Recreation Center for 13 years working with children and adults. Chris has a varied background in most types of clay work and makes his living as a production potter and musician. He traveled to China in 2007, where he demoed with the Korean Masters The Educational Annual Seminar of International Ceramics in Changchun.
