Clay A Summer Session 2

Clay Summer Session 2
June 5–June 17

Stencils and Stories: Pottery for the Table

Serving dishes contain and serve; they hold our favorite foods and our cultural histories. In this workshop, we’ll explore a range of historic and contemporary ideas for serving and storing everything from small delicacies to main courses. These ideas—organized around the space of the table—will be the starting point for imagining the form, scale, surface, and structure of pots. We’ll use midrange clay bodies and glazes. Stencils and colored slips will help transfer surface design ideas onto wet, 3D clay forms. Bring family recipes and sketches of ideas for serving dishes. Basic wheelthrowing skills will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels. Upper clay studio.

Associate professor at Colorado State University; Archie Bray residency (MT), New York Foundation for the Arts grant; exhibitions: Schaller Gallery (MI), Flower City Invitational (NY), Harvey/Meadows Gallery (CO).
