What We’re Doing in the Studio

Garden Stools

We love sharing what our students are doing in our classes. The garden stools above were a particularly fun project that really challenged our students on the wheel and really inspired their creativity.

Made in three parts and assembled, each student then brought his or her own ideas into the project:
