Spend a whole day, playing with clay, making a group of Moon Jars. The day will start, learning a little about their history, looking at images and examining real life Moon Jars, which can be your inspiration during the workshop. Moon Jars originated in Korea – usually made of porcelain and very large they became a national icon. Using pinching and coiling techniques, with moulds, we will make several Moon Jars of various sizes, approx. 6cm – 13cm, possibly 20cm if you’re feeling confident. We will finish the day by decorating the Moon Jars using underglazes.
I will fire and glaze the Moon Jars with a transparent glaze and return them to Micklems Farm for collection in about 4 weeks after the workshop.
Please bring with you – an apron, pencil & paper. Please treat your hands to a good quality handcream , as clay is very drying on the hands.
