2014 Summer Program

The potters wheel is one of civilization's first machines. It lets fingers sculpt and finish clay vessels precisely and efficiently. It produced containers to collect, store and prepare food and water. Use your own micro potters wheel (with its power supply). Small pots speed drying time and allow a whole course of ceramics in a week. Make tools and a carrier. Fire and decorate your work.
