Participants will select a shape and form a trinket dish using a white clay. They will then brush on a layer of colored underglaze and scratch a design through the colored underglaze. The staff at Mountain Pottery will bisque fire, dip in clear glaze and glaze fire your pieces for you. Dishes are ready for pickup or shipping in about 3-5 weeks.
