Brief discussion of the history of ceramics and the rituals of breakfast in this class. You will be designing and making your own custom breakfast set which could include; a cup, tumbler, plate and a bowl. The first 3 classes we will be learning several techniques of hand building (pinch, slump mold, coil and slab) and wheel throwing (basic forms tumblers, bowls and plates).
