About This Class

Hi and welcome to my "Introduction to ceramics and hand building techniques". This is the first part of a series of classes that I´m going to record and publish here.  With the help of these videos, you will be able to start working on your own ceramic projects and ideas.

In this first lesson, we are going to talk about the basic things you need to know before you really can get started with ceramics. In a very simple way, I will explain the different types of materials and how the basic process of creating something with ceramics works. After that, we will start working and practising with basic hand building techniques before we come to our final project; building a pot or a vessel with ceramics.

So I hope you will enjoy and learn something and of course, if you liked this class I hope to see you again for the next upcoming classes, where we are going to learn how to make sculptures, tiles and glaze our projects.

Mexican Monster Maker

Hi, my name is Pau and Im a Mexican monster maker.

I studied Industrial design at IED Madrid and after graduating in 2012 I started inquiring in the ceramic world, first producing my own projects and after manufacturing for other people.

I moved to Poland early in 2017 and started pursuing my artistic career making ceramic sculptures and experimenting more with shape and materials.
