This class will explore methods of slab construction and the techniques necessary to make both prolific and interesting forms. Students will learn to roll slabs easily, turn their ideas into helpful templates and work within the timing of the clay. Techniques such as stamping or texturing slabs will also be considered. Pots and tableware can be accomplished as well as hanging tiles, planters, geometric shapes or stacking vessels. We will get inspired, think outside the pot, and surprise ourselves with effortlessness!


LAYNE ROYTMAN is a working artist in Mendocino, CA.
