A simple bowl can serve many purposes, but a well-executed bowl can rise to the level of an art form. In this two-day intensive class, we will explore the bowl form, and the tools and techniques required to turn them. We will cover the technical side of turning, such as tool control and sharpening, as well as the practical application of design concepts. By applying both proper technique and good design, students will begin to see immediate, and often dramatic, improvements in their work. Some experience in bowl turning will be helpful.
