The art of the vase

Take your design and throwing skills to the next level

Functional and decorative vessels are a staple of the potter’s repertoire. Explore aesthetic principles and design parameters for vase forms. Daniel Vito will explain his design and critical thinking process. He will also demonstrate his throwing techniques. The golden ratio and altering will be stressed. He will help you to establish your own criteria and parameters and show you how to break the rules. There will be an opportunity for you to get hands-on practice making vases at a wheel during the workshop.
