Greetings! Some new work has emerged from the kiln within the last couple of weeks and about a dozen pieces are currently for sale on my etsy page. More will be added as the summer gets hotter down here in Florida. These cups and pitcher give a little glimpse into the developments of my first year of graduate school. I have been looking more closely at the ways painters layer color and I’ve expanded my palette. Architecture has been a big influence the shapes that I’ve been making. I hope you enjoy seeing the changes.

This workshop will focus on throwing and altering with excursions into hand building. Using contrast as an overarching design principle, we will aim for making strong utilitarian forms and embellishing their surfaces to entice the user. Techniques involved include making and using insulating foam board molds, and forming lids, handles, and spouts. Specifically, daily demonstrations will cover cups, serving dishes constructed on slump molds, boxes, and pouring vessels. The application of texture, inlay, terra sigillata, slip, resists, and glazes will be used to explore unconventional approaches to the earthenware surface. Topics of discussion will be origination of ideas, supportive critiques, and sustainability in ceramics. Participants will experience numerous techniques to use as points of departure in their own work upon their return home. $140 Resident / $152.00 Non-Resident
