Potter’s Wheel
Any good potter knows he needs to cut a foot. Heavily inspired by my college ceramics days; the rickety greenware shelf on wheels, the trash can full of abandoned and ruined projects to be recycled back in, the old school early 80’s wheel, and even our artist bears a close resemblance to my instructor, complete with coffee cup.

Built for my Iron Builder competition with Bruce Lowell using the dark red fez piece

Ben Carter Visiting Artist Workshop and Podcast Recording
October 9, 2014– Ben Carter Visiting Artist Workshop This workshop focused on integrating surface design with altered wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery. Workshop participants learned methods for throwing with less water to create a softer surface and the use of quick manipulations of form for expressive, gestural pots. Surface design methods included slip decorating, sgraffito and underglaze painting. During the workshop, Carter discussed aesthetic issues (i.e. proportions, color theory, etc.), making strong functional pots at low fire temperatures, and creative problem solving in the studio. Additional discussions of marketing, social media and the changing landscape of contemporary craft left workshop attendees recharged and rejuvenated.
