In this four-part class you'll learn how to make a teapot from start to finish with the guidance of Erin Furimsky! Making a teapot can be quite a challenge and is among the more intriguing of utilitarian vessels. The simplest teapot is still a complex form, and with the articulation of multiple parts is inherently sculptural. You must integrate these parts (body, foot, lid, spout, handle) into a unified form within the context of design, function, and scale. The function of a teapot dictates an asymmetrical shape, which you must visually balance.
In this workshop series, our objective is to create teapots that are well designed aesthetically, ergonomically, and functionally, and explore creativity. Both throwing and hand-building will be covered. We will start by looking at images of teapots and do preliminary sketches to work out a plan before starting. Your teapot design(s) will be an expression of your own unique intentions. More than one piece may be created.
