Thanksgiving Serving Bowls - T10/17 

Class Fee: $52 / $44 Studio Members + $10 Supply Fee
No Groupons or other pre-paid vouchers for this class.

You will craete two large Thanksgiving themed serving bowls or platters in this class. Once your pieces are bisque fired, you'll visit Mike's studio to decorate and glaze them. May we suggest, if you have children, bring them along to this appointment to make the traditional handprint turkey!

Classes are small (limited to six participants) to provide indivudals the opportunity to receive special attention to work through ideas and processes. Tools are provided with three wheels, slab roller, ware boards and space to store your work before bisque firing. 

Mike also offers open studio and a six-week more in-depth course in pottery.

About the Instructor, Mike Smieja:
"Growing up, pottery was my passion. I took a break for 15+ years and my path lead me back. The clay is the boss, I am just the grateful messenger."  - Zilla 

I fell in love with making pottery in high school. I wanted to pursue it as a profession, but several people told me I would never make any money. After owning several businesses I found myself attending college for the first time when I was 32. After graduation I started a non-profit here in Minneapolis and set out to change the world. My path lead me back to a potters wheel and I fell in love again 20 years later, so I bought a wheel and a kiln and reinvented myself as a potter. I believe that my pottery embraces the changes that I have made in my life. I hope that my pots are just a vehicle to build relationships between people and places.
