Hi, my name's Jamie Bates Slone and I will be showing you how to make a large mouth bowl like the one in the video above.
In this workshop, you're going to learn:
How to create functional bowls
How to pinch the forms initially
How to sculpt the mouths
How to glaze and decorate your vessel
This workshop is for anyone wanting to learn a new skill and challenge themselves. There are endless possibilities with this technique.
The tools I use are very basic and if you are a hand builder you should have all the tools in your studio.
After this workshop, you could be making beautiful work like this:

About Jamie Bates Slone
My current work is purely driven by will and emotion. It is a cerebral exploration of my own anxiety, depression, and womanhood. With these ideas in mind, I have dug myself a vast well from which to pull from. By dissecting my own feelings about motherhood, sexuality, life balance, and upbringing, I can create work that resonates universally while simultaneously reflecting my own unique experiences. I choose to sculpt the body in all of its operations, using scale, vignette, and color to encourage the viewer to further confront their own psyche and presumptions.
In my studio practice, anxieties often materialize through clay. Both sculptural and functional, the objects I create are continuously evolving as I further explore the human condition's complexities from a female perspective. My work is a self-portrait that is ever-changing as I physically age and continue to explore my own mental states. I see my art practice as an essential part of my mental well-being. It works as my outlet and has given me a voice. As I begin to better understand my own body and mind, I feel compelled to advocate for others who have yet to understand their own. I find strength in knowing that my work has meaning beyond my own healing and understanding.
