Let’s celebrate our own beautiful vessels with all their lumps and dimples, bumps and pimples, sags and tags, tits and tatts! Come and join Dominique Ford, resident artist at The Pot House, to hand build your own beautiful vessel, a jug with jugs! Or perhaps just nips or just cheeks… whatever form you want to celebrate.
Dominique will guide participants though hand building and forming their jug and any desired sticky-outie-bits. Then they can underglaze their vessels and features with whatever colours they wish. Each piece can be left to dry and picked up later once Dominique has glazed and fired them.

A ceramic artist with a background in graphic design and children's book illustration, Dominique has three adult children and lives with her husband and some cats in rural Tauranga. Dominique describes her ceramics as fun and freaky, cute and creepy. "Do they want to hug you, or eat you?" Inspired by slugs, bugs and sea things; triffids, tentacles and body parts, Domonique believes everybody needs a vase to put pretty flowers in, especially if it has eyeballs, teeth and tentacles.
You can see Dominique's work on her Instagram @precocious_vessels or visit them in the flesh at The Pot House in the Historic Village, Tauranga.
