Shrink Pots are magic little cylindrical vessels. Artist Tony Perelli will guide you in the process of carving a small log or tree branch  and strategically employing the wood's natural processes to make a sweet little functional vessel.First we hollow a small, fresh and moist tree trunk or branch and cut a notch towards one end. Next we fit a dry piece of wood loosely into our notch and as the wet wood dries, it will shrink to fit the dry bottom piece. Finally we can fit a lid or cover to the pot.

Materials and tools will be provided. If you have your own tools you are encouraged to bring them along as well. We will use an auger, gouges and various knives. Advance registration is required.
