Upcoming Ceramics Classes
Instructor: Cliff Glover
In this class we will investigate the qualities a tea practitioner looks for when making and serving a ritual bowl of matcha.
Calligraphy artist, Gerow Reece, will assist with the class, demonstrating the Tea Ceremony, showing us how to whip up our own bowl of matcha, so that we can understand why some bowls might be more preferable to others.
Along with making our own Chawans, there will be an opportunity to make small incense containers (kogo), as well as some small plates which are traditionally used to serve sweets prior to offering a bowl of matcha. After the bisque firing there will be a glaze demo, then a raku firing, bringing the whole process full circle.
The class is open to both beginning and advanced students, hand builders and wheel throwers, and anyone who might want to understand more about Chado: The Way of Tea.
