Clay B Summer Session 5

Clay Summer Session 5
July 17–29
Lynn Duryea and Holly Walker
Stretch the Limit

Explore the potent possibilities of form and scale with two long-time handbuilders: Lynn is a minimalist sculptor and inventor of the SlabSling; Holly is a coil and pinch potter. Using handbuilding and various idea-generating methods, we’ll investigate how materials, process, and technique intersect to produce work with depth and meaning. We’ll work with earthenware and electric firings, and explore surface potentials in applications appropriate for both sculptural and functional work, ranging from subtle and soft to exuberant color. All levels. Lower clay studio.

Lynn: studio artist, professor emerita at Appalachian State University (NC); other teaching: Maine College of Art, Haystack (ME), SnowFarm (MA); exhibitions: Fuller Craft Museum (MA), Center for Maine Contemporary Art; publications: Ceramics Art + Perception, Ceramics Monthly (cover story).
