Explore the full range of hand building techniques to construct both functional pottery and sculptural forms. Demonstrations will include pinched, coiled and slab built pottery as well as sculptural forms which blend these various techniques. You are encouraged to bring your own ideas to develop during the work time. The class will also include a variety of short assignments, spontaneous clay exercises, and some Argentine tango. This will make sense, I promise! Small work made during the first few days will be fired during the class. Beginner and Beyond

Eric Knoche had a very bad attitude towards pottery as a child and young adult. Towards the end of his time at university he touched clay for the first time and after that could no longer imagine doing anything else with his life. He subsequently worked for two years with ceramist Jeff Shapiro and for six months with Isezaki Jun, Living National Treasure, Bizen, Japan. In 2011 he discovered the Argentine tango and now splits his passions between clay work and dancing. In addition he enjoys playing pinball, hiking and checking the cloud formations for the face of Elvis. Eric lives in Asheville, NC with his wife Kristin. www.ericknoche.com
