The cylinder is the basic skill for most forms we create. We are often too quick to jump ahead without teaching our body and brain how to make the perfect cylinder. Here is your chance! Sign up for this cylinder intensive and attempt to throw 15-20 PERFECT cylinders..(yeah right). Set your goal - maybe a matching set, or a sized order set. We will be timing ourselves and challenging ourselves. Artist will keep 4 cylinders of their choice. Additional firing fees of .06/cubic inch will be added for additional wanted pots.
