Clay B Summer Session 1

Clay Summer Session 1
May 22 – June 5, 2020
Lynn Duryea & 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. Using earthenware and electric firings, we’ll explore surface potentials in applications appropriate for both sculptural and functional work, ranging from subtle and soft to exuberant color. All levels. Code 01CB
