Work on a potter's wheel using porcelain clay, often referred to as 'white gold' due to its beautiful translucent quality when fired to a high temperature. Taking inspiration from historical dining vessels, you are shown a number of techniques including how to make handles and surface embellishments. Suited to those who have previously completed a beginners throwing course.
