About the Workshop

 

This class is about hand-building objects from simple to more complex forms. More basic functional vessels to more involved, richly painted forms- like stacked Dutch tulip vases will be considered, as well as the work of ceramic sculptors, who, like Peter Voulkos, pushed the industrial and domestic uses for clay into the realm of art. We will look
at the rich history of ceramics and how ceramic objects from many parts of the world are made, using any, and all methods of hand building, including slab, coil, and the potter’s wheel. Students will be encouraged to stretch their abilities, build on innate tendencies, and respond to their own work by taking risks and challenging themselves.  This class is open to beginners as well as people with lots of experience.
