The Potters' Round Table discussion on Pottery and Physics
Time & Location
About the Event
Physics is the science of matter and energy and their interactions. When you hear the word “physics” you probably think of things like nuclear power, electronics, or rocket science, but physics is deeply involved in our everyday lives and in such ordinary activities as pottery. In this discussion we’ll talk about the physical science that’s going on behind all the various steps in the pottery-making process. Having a little background can help us to solve problems and improve our techniques. Never took a physics class? Here’s a chance to see how a little science can help us understand our everyday pottery activities.
