What’s with the Pottery II B you ask? Kelly Shaw has created several variations of the pottery II course. Each focuses on a a few different specific elements. For example, Pottery II A focuses on stamps, and combination forms like cups and saucers, whereas Pottery II C focuses on vases, bottles, and throwing off the Hump. Over the course of the year, we typically offer Pottery II A, B, C, and D.
