POT 11 - Pottery on the Wheel
with Mary Cobb
Introduction to the potter’s wheel, for beginning and intermediate students. Basic throwing skills will be taught, as well as design and decorative techniques for functional pottery forms.
The tuition includes a $55 fee, which covers the cost of one bag of stoneware, raku, or lizella clay (other clays at additional cost), glazes, and 2,000 cubic inches of glaze firing. Students provide their own tools. Additional clay and tools may be purchased from the studio (credit card only). All work fired at Callanwolde must be produced in the Pottery Program studios (no outside work allowed). Students may access the studios on weekends and most afternoons for practice at no additional cost.
About the Instuctor: Mary Cobb - "I want to create pots that are strong in form and grace, which will be of service and give pleasure through their use." Having learned to make pots at Callanwolde, I earned a pottery assistantship prior to becoming a pottery instructor. With a degree in Art Education, I have teaching experience with the Atlanta Public Schools, a private psychiatric hospital, and recently retired after teaching 23 years at Westminster.
