Wheel Basics with Devon Gelhar

Wheel Throw

Try our introductory wheel throwing class! The class will cover the basics of using the potter’s wheel to form functional objects like bowls, cups, and vases! These classes have a maximum of ten students, ensuring plenty of student to teacher contact time, making them ideal if you have little or no experience with clay and want to test your interest.

Get your hands wet during four of instruction. Wear old clothes, and bring an old towel and get ready to make!

Tool kits are available through Crossings. Supply fee includes one bag of clay (25 pounds), all glazing materials, and use of studio tools.

Devon Gelhar is a Bachelor of Fine Arts candidate in Studio Art, with an emphasis in Ceramics and Art History at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She will be attending Syracuse University in the fall of 2017 to continue her studies and pursue a Master of Fine Art degree in Ceramics.

Devon discovered and fell in love with ceramics in high school, and enjoyed it as a hobby for many years before deciding to go back to school to make it her career. She produces a range of functional ceramic wares, considering herself foremost to be a potter. She works primarily with Earthenware clay, enjoying the rich red clay and the bright color palate she can achieve on her pots. When not in the studio making, she likes to spend time outdoors rock climbing and exploring the natural areas around her.
