This week at Pinecroft we have Bruce Almighty Cochrane. In my opinion Bruce is one of the best vessel makers in Canada. Even for me after years of throwing to watch him work is like magic. He started the week making composite vase forms from different individual sections on the wheel. Bruce makes paper cut outs of the forms he wants to make. This is a visual reference for the parts he will make on the wheel. Today he is making these amazing boxes. To see his work you often find yourself asking how the hell did he do that?
As with tradition here we went out for our yellow perch and chips last night and tonight is the pot luck to watch Bruce’s power point and see the work of the students.
You can tell the quality of a class by the pot luck, Cathi’s class of last week will be a hard act to follow.
