"Once you can throw you have
wings.” This was a quote from Marguerite Wildenhain , who Jeanne studied
with in 1974 at her California studio. Marguerite, a renowned German
Bauhaus- trained potter and artist, taught her student invaluable
techniques for throwing and about the creation of form and function.
Each of the four classes will emphasize techniques to create
different shapes with helpful phrases to remind you how recreate these
same shapes. Soon you will be saying similar things in your head as you
form a pot. Learn different "steps” to help you with your throwing and
form. One step... leads to another. You are invited to a class that will
not only improve your work, but will be enjoyable and rewarding.
