A42 Hinged Clam Jar

Wow everyone! Create an exotic and functional, ceramic, hinged clam jar by combining the use of throwing and hand-building techniques. Throw two bowl forms that are joined lip-to-lip like a clam, cut the lid, add clay hinge components and decorative elements. This project lends itself to carving, sgraffito, and sculpting in an abstract or organic design. We will also be glazing this hinged/lidded form.

Level IV – This class is for those with advanced skill or knowledge in the medium. Student should be highly motivated and self-directed. Some classes in this level will require a portfolio review and/or approval by the instructor.
