construction of asymmetrical work. A master potters’ tradition, East Asian coil combines coil
technique with wheel concepts providing the greatest wet structural strength for clay sculpture.
The course will include lecture, demonstration and hands-on exercises to teach advanced coil
making and building, as well as advanced techniques of coil riveting, ribbing, bridging, boating
and bracing for large and/or sculptural forms in clay.
