Learn Hollowware!

Hollowware is the process of making hollow forms by hammering sheet metal - resulting in anything from cups to teapots to abstract sculpture. I teach a couple times a year (typically spring and fall) at Pratt Fine Art Center in the Central District of Seattle.

I also teach and share slide presentations in other areas and schools. If you'd like me to present in your area, email c@catherinegrisez.com
