Garden Totem Classes
Create something unique, personal & spectacular for your garden.

In this class you'll design, build & personalize a garden totem.  You will learn hand building skills that will prepare you for other clay projects. We'll work in stoneware, sculpting parts that will stack like beads to form a vertical sculpture. You'll learn the important issues that allow it to weather our winters and stay out year round.  We'll fire in a reduction firing toabout 2350 degrees, cone 10 in clay speak. This class has been very popular with takers from previous classes.  Some decide to go again!

Maximum 7 students per class, in my studio.  (Minimum of 6 for class to go).

$250 Class +$30 clay/glazes/firings fee + $20 totem base & rod cut to length. 

Includes: 30 lbs Stoneware Clay, Glazes & Firing in a high fire, reduction gas kiln (Cone 10, 2350 degrees), as well as the structure for your totem cut to length.
