CLAY SUMMER SESSION 2
JUNE 4–16, 2023
Oh! You Pretty Things
“To articulate what is past does not mean to recognize ‘how it really was.’ It means to take control of a memory as it flashes in a moment of danger.”
Students in this workshop will learn from my approach to constructing earthenware objects. Sharing techniques through demonstrations and guided hands-on learning, I will impart many aspects of my creative practice: handbuilding, printing, glazing, and much more. Responding to daily prompts, students will create personalized objects to explore the genre of still life and to consider a thing’s capacity to act as a conduit for memory. All levels. Lower clay studio.
