For this demo-only workshop, Mike and Suze will be working side by side. Mike plans to demo a variety of objects including pouring pots, bowls, plates, and related sculptural forms/vessels using a combination of wheel and hand-building processes. His approach to making revolves around abstraction and specifically abstracting the pottery archetype. Mike will discuss sourcing various influences and building processes utilized in his work that often reflect questions wondering how something could be versus what it should be.

Suze will focus on demo-ing functional pottery forms made using thrown and hand-built elements, altered and stacked, moving from wheel to table top. She will also explore adding volume and form to slabs, creating vessels.  Slip decorating techniques and surface enhancement with also be discussed. Demos, sketchbook exercises, and a sharing of references will enhance ideas for experimentation and play.

This event is FREE and open to the public. We ask that anyone interested in participating in this event to please call (406) 446-3993 or email us at to reserve your spot.
