Wed. February 10, 2010 Hollow Form Vessels

Hello Clayers! It’s time for another great clay meeting. This time the meeting venue and date and time have changed and will be held* Wednesday, February 10 at Southern Oaks Recreation Center, from 6 to 9 pm.* We will be trying out this venue and date and time to determine if this change will work for us so please give your input on the change. The physical address and directions are: 400 S.W. 66th Street (The facility is just east of Walker on 55th street next to the park, on the right. Turn right into the parking lot. It is brightly lit and in a safe neighborhood. It is on the street behind the Southern Oaks Library.) [Link to Map]

This month I will be teaching Kathleen Dustin’s technique for creating hollow form vessels. It is rather a lengthy process so we will be breaking the class down into 2 classes, one in February and the other in March. If you do not have some of these items, I will have mine on hand for use. . The supply list is below:


Pasta Machine

Cutting Blade

Exacto Knife

Baby Powder

Armor All or WD-40

Needle Tool



Black Permanent Marker

Medium Grit/Rough Sanding Sponge

At least 4 0z (or scrap clay the size of 2 blocks of packaged clay) of thoroughly blended scrap clay (make sure you blend the scrap clay until it is of uniform consistency and color)

1 block (2 oz) metallic clay

2-3 blocks of clay (will be making a skinner blend)

The theme for the swap at February’s meeting will be “red and/or pink.” So everyone bring a swap item. Also bring an idea for a book, DVD or magazine to add to our library. See you at the meeting!
