Clay Fall Concentration

Clay Fall Concentration
September 22 – November 15, 2019
Suze Lindsay & Kent McLaughlin
Form, Function & Fire

This workshop will be an expansive study of utilitarian pottery conducted through demonstrations, discussions, sketchbook exercises, and structured practice. We’ll share our individual approaches to making pottery, including wheelthrowing, altered forms, handbuilding with slabs and coils, and drop-and-drape molds. We’ll have conversations about making pots for daily and ritual use and engage in exercises that will develop continuity between form and surface. Presentations will include images and videos that will encourage your personal voice. Guest instructor Dan Finnegan will share his work reflecting his training at Winchcombe Pottery (UK). We will fire stoneware and porcelain in salt, reduction, and wood kilns. All levels. Code F00CA
