Ceramic Pinch Pot Scoop Making

Workshop: Ceramic Pinch Pot Scoop Making
with Andrew M. Kontrabecki

The Pinching technique is one of, if not the oldest methods in the world by which Humans have made Ceramic Vessels. Students will be shown how to modify this technique in order to create a simple scoop.

Students will take away a handheld personal ceramic scoop. This type of ceramic implement is extremely versatile. They can be used for everything from soup, beverages and dried goods.  

After students finish the workshop they will receive a reward for all of their hard work. Enjoy Palette’s house made ice cream in the Palette Scoops designed by Chef Peter and Andrew.

Special Note: Once formed, the scoops will need to be left at Palette for approximately two weeks while they fully dried and fired. Palette staff will notify students once their wares are available for pickup.

Bites from the Palette menu and a wine pairing will be offered during the workshop. 

Cost: $90

Andrew M. Kontrabecki believes good functionality reaches beyond the function of wares, often changing the environment the ceramics are used in. His wares are imbued with a reductive style that isolates the purpose of the object while eschewing additional flourish and ornament, depicting the beauty of an object as it is and finding style in how it might interact with its surroundings. As house ceramist, Andrew leads the ceramics program at Palette, creating wares for the restaurant and Shop.
