This class examines the special considerations needed to make useful and decorative plates and platters. Emphasis is on safe turning techniques and the use of the scroll chuck in expansion mode. Decorative surface embellishments add unique flair to each individual’s work. Exploring these creative techniques off the lathe opens up multiple opportunities to find that signature style and unique artistic voice.
