Clay Fall Concentration

October 2 – November 11, 2022

Finding Form and Surface

This workshop will focus on developing form and surface in pots, using history, environment, and personal experiences to help students develop their voice in clay. We’ll focus on the techniques I use for creating elaborately patterned vessels–including wheelthrowing, handbuilding, and color-slip inlay. Working mostly with mid-range stoneware fired in electric kilns, students will push the boundaries of ceramic materials by experimenting with multi-layered surface treatments using carving, colored slips, underglazes, and glazes. Projects, exercises, and conversations will stimulate exploration and growth. All levels. Upper clay studio.
