Our approach develops the art of throwing and the use of a few simple shaping tools. Our curriculum continues the 800 year old European tradition brought to this country 75 years ago by the Bauhaus-trained potter Marguerite Wildenhain.
You will learn a series of steps which build upon themselves to give you a structured approach to making most pieces encountered in studio pottery work. Each step is practiced until it becomes second nature. Our philosophy at South Road is that freedom of expression comes with discipline and practice.
The student should have sufficient vigor and focus to use a kick-wheel. Our wheels are highly responsive, light-weight continental kick-wheels. There is a wheel for each student.
Advanced students will work on a series of more difficult forms and decorations developed jointly with the instructor.
The founder, Bruce Murray, was a student of Marguerite Wildenhain and has worked in this tradition for several decades.
