Thrown and Altered Project

Thrown and altered” is a term used by ceramic artists to indicate a process where you cut, dissect, flip, or significantly alter a thrown vessel to create an often asymmetrical shape that would not be possible from the wheel alone.

This project will build on the skills gained through the Mug and Goblet projects by allowing us to focus on a broader range of alterations that can be done with a thrown form.

You will create one large object, or set of smaller objects, where each component of the object is significantly altered to create a new form. Skills to work on with this project are: exploring more ways to alter thrown forms, assembling slightly stiff and leatherhard thrown forms, and exploring more complex asymmetrical thrown forms
