Using the potter’s wheel, Nick Joerling will demonstrate how to throw forms that will be altered once removed from the wheel. As he creates his forms, discussion on adding marks and demarcations before off-wheel alterations will be covered; then, using he forms from the wheel, he will display how to shape and mold “non-circular” shapes. Nick will create and discuss serving trays, open vessels, teapots, and platters. After our catered lunch, Nick will give an hour lecture on his historical references, accolades, and his work as a North Carolina potter with the Penland School of Crafts circuit.
