Service Description

🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔 Moon jars are a traditional ceramic vessel from Korea, usually made by joining two hemispherical halves. Their generous, spherical form, and often milky glaze evokes a stunning, glowing full-moon. Ceramicist and teacher Emilie will guide and accompany you through the different steps of realising your own moon jar on the potter's wheel, inspired by this traditional shape, playing with perfect imperfections ! The course will be given in English. Emilie also speaks Dutch and understands French. *This course is suitable for hands who have already learnt how to center clay on a potter's wheel and make simple bowl shapes* PROGRAM : The course is programmed over two evenings set a week appart : 1) Introduction and demonstrations. Learn how to throw pairs of symmetrical bowls on the potter's wheel. 2) Learn how to combine the two hemispheres on the potter's wheel, create seamless joints and sculpt the foot and neck of your jar. FINISHED WORK : You shall each aim to create a moon jar. The size will depend on your experience on the wheel, and your desire for challenges ! SMALL GROUP : The course welcomes maximum 6 students. You shall be a cosy gang of 12 hands, great to learn from each other. PRICE : * The cost of the course covers all materials and firings. You shall be using a fine, grey, stone-ware clay that fire's light beige. * The course does not include the glazing of your moon jar.
