Sip and Slip: Ceramic Workshop
This “Sip & Slip” class offers a fun hands-on approach to functional pottery. Through the use of clay slabs you will be able to explore a range of surface choices and forms that allow you to make your own Tea Bowl. Perfect to use for your morning tea/coffee, an evening whiskey, a flower arrangement, or even as a fun way to put a unique flair to homemade cocktails! Our experienced potters can assure you that drinks always taste better in a cup you made yourself!
The surfaces will be done using tools, stamps, and even random objects that can create interesting textures which become further enhanced by the glaze you pick or highlighted by the wide range of underglaze colors in stock at LeMoyne. Using just your fingers we will show you how simple it can be to produce your own interesting form that will really make your piece stand out from the rest. By the end you will have a beautiful new tea bowl that will put any old coffee mug to shame!
Please feel free to bring drinks, snacks, and wine!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
BAUM ROAD STUDIOS
Akshar grew up coming to the art rooms after school to find his sisters. The same teachers his sisters had when he was in elementary became his high school art teachers. Those same Florida High Art teachers lead him to win the Best and Brightest in Art for the Class of 2016. He graduated from FSU in 2020 with a BS in Biology with Marine Honors.
Krishna practiced ceramics in high school and continued practicing at the FSU Art Center. She learned to throw her last year of high school and continued learning at LeMoyne and the FSU Art Center. She has two degrees from FSU, a BS in Chemistry and an MS in STEM Teaching. She currently teaches college chemistry.
Together they start Baum Road Studios in Oct 2020 after they made too many pieces the first few months of the lockdown. Covid allowed them to finish setting up their studio in their parent’s barn and start selling their pieces. Today their studio is fully equipped with two running kilns, a slab roller, extruder, and wheels. Akshar does the majority of the hand-building and Krishna throws on the wheel.
