In the pottery studio towards the back of Temple's Cultural Activities Center, master potter Larry Matthews leads his workshop students through the process of "throwing and firing."
"It's called turnin' and burnin' on the east coast," the 60-something instructor says, describing the steps he's teaching this weekday morning. He's talking about shaping raw clay on a revolving turntable into a graceful bowl, waiting a suitable time for the piece to dry and then cooking it in a kiln at over 2,000 degrees. Glazing is added to some of his students' creations and the shelves are filled with colorful clay concoctions.
Another class starts Aug. 8 at the Killeen Lions Club Park Senior Center.
