In this four day course you will further explore the creation of ‘drop outs’ which are essentially tall thin vessels not normally achievable through standard kiln forming processes. 

We will look at ways to cold work and finish your vessel through rim removal, grinding, hand lapping and lap

grinding. 

We will discuss colour choice , pattern and glass viscosity and how these impact on your vessel. 

We will make one large vessel incorporating strip construction and one medium vessel including powder manipulation.

Finally, we will discuss firing schedules suitable for medium and large sized drop outs. 

You will finish the course with one or two larger vessels
