Immerse yourself in the Barrett-Danes family's tradition in ceramics as you learn how to create vivid and expressive animal forms using a range of pottery techniques. First of all, spend time studying the unique characteristics of each animal, then consider overall balance and proportion. You will complete at least two animals, wall-mounted heads or headed pots.
