Clay Summer Session 2
June 5–June 17
This workshop will explore a range of systems and techniques for creating volumetric, handbuilt sculptures with a focus on problems of scale, gravity, and architecture. We’ll engage in demonstrations, reading, discussions, and critiques, and techniques will include building with coils and slabs, using one-part plaster molds, glazing and electric firing (cone 04 oxidation). We’ll draw inspiration from the sympathetic creative practices of music and poetry and their use of system, material, and formal thinking to generate creative expression. Earthenware clay. All levels. Lower clay studio.
