Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay
July 8-12, 2019
Maximum enrollment: 8
Open to all levels, basic wheel throwing skills recommended
In this 5-day workshop participants will work side-by-side with me in my Helena, Montana studio. The workshop is focused on porcelain. I will demonstrate a variety of wheel-thrown forms, my approach to trimming pottery, methods for carving intricate pattern on functional forms, as well as glazing and high firing in my reduction glaze kiln. From ancient Korean techniques, to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. They 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. Workshop attendees will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice.
