Clay A Summer Session 7

Clay Summer Session 7
August 14–19
Sunshine Cobb
Exploring Functional Pottery with Handbuilding


This workshop will motivate novice potters to experiment with new and old forms and construction methods. With a process-over-product mentality and an eye toward creative expansion, we’ll cover coil and pinch methods along with hard and soft slab construction to generate pottery components. I will talk about building surfaces throughout the making process and glaze and surface treatments. We’ll discuss how inspiration and abstract concepts inform work and how they can be part of your creative practice. Midrange stoneware; bisque fire only.
Beginning level; experienced students welcome. Upper clay studio.

Studio artist; teaching: Red Clay Lodge (MT), Santa Fe Clay (NM), Anderson Ranch (CO), Penland; Archie Bray Foundation (MT) long-term residency; named 2013 Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly and NCECA; author of Mastering Hand Building (Voyageur Press).
