2008 Summer Program

Clay is one of civilization's most universal resources. Every culture has found methods of shaping and transforming its clay for practical and artistic purposes. Construct tools to flatten, press, roll, pinch and mark clay. Construct beads from Egypt, a seal from Persia, tiles from England, France and Italy, a flower holder from China. All in the micropottery scale that allows quick drying and decorating. With a portable carrier and work surface.
