This zoom workshop from Giselle Hick's studio (Helena, Montana, USA) is focused on making spheres and curvilinear vessels using a coil and pinch hand-building technique. Coil and pinch is a fundamental ceramic process, so this is a great class for beginners, intermediate and advanced makers. The technique can be applied to both functional and sculptural forms.
Giselle will begin with a concise overview of the fundamentals of coil building including rolling coils and pinching up a wall. Then the bulk of the demonstration and conversation will focus on achieving full, generous, curved forms. She will introduce a technique of building upside-down that will help you get started. It’s weird, but it works!
She will offer helpful tips on ways to control and manipulate the material and get you thinking about form and function. She will offer helpful tips on ways to control and manipulate the material and get you thinking about form and function.
