Clay Spring Concentration
March 6 – April 29, 2022
Caroline Douglas and Jenny Mendes
Deeply mining surface exploration and personal content will be the launching point for this workshop. Working with low- and high-fire clay, we’ll use both form and narrative to push the boundaries of the material. Experimentation with slips, underglazes, terra sigillata, low fire, and atmospheric firing will lead to the development of a unique body of work. Caroline and Jenny’s friendship and their experience working together in clay will be the catalyst for an engaging, interwoven, collaboratively-taught workshop. All levels.

Who looks inside, awakens.” -Carl Jung
