Kurinuki: Reductive Making with Clay (Summer Special) with Holly O'Meehan

Learn the art of 'kurinuki' - a Japanese term referring to the handbuilding technique of starting with a solid block of clay and hollowing it out to create an interior void.

You will be able to experiment with clay in the first two classes and then work with oxides, underglazes, and glazes in the final class of the short course.
