Nature/Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay
In this workshop, methods for carving intricate pattern on a variety of wheel thrown porcelain forms and traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle pottery techniques will be demonstrated. From ancient Korean techniques to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Participants will also sharpen their throwing technique and will learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns in clay. Generous discussions about studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Students will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice. All levels welcome.
