        Apprenticeships: Altering the American Potter - Lesson Plan | Craft in America

        In this lesson, students get to know three American potters who are connected by their individual experiences as apprentices at Leach Pottery in St. Ives, England. Students will also learn about two internationally influential potters—Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada who took on many apprentices, as well as connect the notion of apprenticeship to their personal lives. Students will research the work of a featured artist, looking for qualities and attributes they feel they would like to apply to their own work. In studio practice, students will create a series of altered functional forms that have been influenced by the work of other craftspeople.
