Fine Art Gallery and Art Instruction in Birmingham, Alabama
Clay and Pottery Classes
Scott received a Masters of Fine Art in Ceramics at Ohio State University in 1989. His sculpture has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide. He was a prototype designer for Bath and Body Works and White Barn Candle Company for 7 years, and has been working with clay since 1979.
Scott is currently co-owner of Red Dot Gallery, and is on the Ceramics Monthly Advisory Board, a national ceramics publication.
Beginning Students will learn techniques for throwing basic forms (bowls, plates, mugs, pitchers etc.) on the potter's wheel as well as hand-building techniques (pinch, coil, and slab-building) if desired.
For intermediate and advanced students, I will help you refine your existing skills and expand your possibilities of form on and off of the wheel.
For many years I've worked with White Earthenware, and low-fire glazes, but my students and I have recently been exploring mid-range (cone 5-6) clay and glazes as well.
Classes are ongoing and students can start at any time if a time slot is available. Availability is first come, first serve. I teach beginners and advanced students together with a 8 student per class limit. Price is $165 per 6 weeks, and students must commit to 6 consecutive class sessions meeting at the same time every week.
Materials (clay and glaze) are not included in the class price which costs each student approximately $50, and I provide a list and locations to purchase supplies.
