ONSITE: Kurinuki

Kurinuki is the Japanese technique of starting with a block of clay, developing the exterior, then hollowing it out. This class will create a box, bud vase, tea bowl and more. We will also explore images of Kurinuki work and talk about bottles, incense burners, pouring vessels and larger bowls.

About the Instructor

Al Pellenberg

Al has been been playing and working with mud since he was a kid, his “Play-Doh Fun Factory” was just the best toy Al ever had. Al believes he became an architect and space designer as a result of all those things that he built in my “first childhood." Over the years he have been in and out of the clay studio. He worked on the wheel for many years making bowls, cups, teapots and the lot, but the move to hand-building has been very rewarding and offering a set of challanges that combine both his architectual training and creative side in new and different ways
