This course is a great introduction to making pottery forms without the potter’s wheel. Participants will make a cup, a bowl, a plate and a vase using clay molds and coil building techniques. These techniques can be used anywhere without the need for expensive tools. All finished pieces will be glazed with food safe glazes and suitable for the dishwasher and microwave.
Introduction to Handbuilding Pottery is part of Vuka's 6-week summer class program.
Class will be held over the following 6 Mondays from 6:30pm - 8:00pm at Vuka.

Ryan started making pots while he was an art student at Abilene University in West Texas. After receiving his BFA he moved to Austin in 1995 and began an apprenticeship with Billy Ray Mangham. As his apprenticeship continued he developed my own style, taught children and adults and began building his own kilns. Today he divides his time between his own studio, the ceramic studio tech duties at the Dougherty Arts Center, organizing the Art of the Pot Studio Tour and teaching and exhibiting around the country.
