Host: Kala Stein
This zoom workshop from Giselle Hick's studio (Helena, Montana, USA) is focused on making zig zag/geometric 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.
Along with 90 days to watch the video, you receive:
- Giselle's 2 glaze recipes
- No-blowup bisque firing schedule for electric kiln
- Tool list & notes on clay type
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 will focus on the components and considerations for coiling compound/complex zig-zag forms. Giselle will address how to achieve clear transitional edges, the importance of timing with coil building, and constructing cantilevered planes. She will offer helpful tips on ways to control and manipulate the material and get you thinking about form and function.
Some students like to work during the workshop and others do not - this is your preference- we recommend watching the first time and then working alongside the recording of the video at your leisure.
