Potheads by Amber:  Potheads in Process

Potheads are whimsical hand sculpted little succulent planters. I want to take this opportunity to show people how they are made. Not with the intention of recreating the subject, but as a way to satisfy curiosity and get excited about clay. My idea is to set up a small ceramic studio where I will be working on my potheads. I will show my different techniques for sculpting, my tools and the different phases of the pothead production. I will have an area where I will work in wet clay, sculpting the potheads and area for painting potheads in the second and third phase. A few finished Potheads will be on display. Nothing will be for sale at this time.
