Adam Field
Cultivating Inspirations in Clay

Demonstrations in this workshop will include my methods for carving intricate patterns on a variety of wheelthrown porcelain forms plus traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle techniques. Students will learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns in clay. We’ll discuss studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and strategies for promotion and marketing. Students will gain the skill and confidence needed to create and decorate functional work in their own voices. We’ll fire salt and reduction kilns, exploring the reduction-cooling process, and share firings with Forrest Lesch-Middelton’s workshop. Click here for more details.

p.s. Forrest Middelton and I have been good friends since we met in 2001, we're both really looking forward to teaching our first Penland workshops at the same time in neighboring studios!
