In this workshop students will create their own clay reliquary. A reliquary is a container for holy relics – whether in a religious context or a secular one we all have things that we revere as relics. Students should come to class prepared with personal items they want to make a reliquary for, such as a photo, a piece of jewelry, something belonging to a loved one who has passed, or other special object.
*Pieces will be fired by Arrowmont staff and available for pickup at a later date.

En esta clase los estudiantes crearán un relicario de arcilla. Un relicario es un contenedor de reliquias sagradas; ya sea en un contexto religioso o secular, todos tenemos cosas que veneramos como reliquias. Los estudiantes deben venir a clase preparados con artículos personales para los que quieran hacer un relicario, como una foto, una joya, algo que pertenezca a alguien que amas y que haya fallecido, o otro objeto especial.
*Las piezas serán horneadas en un horno por el personal de Arrowmont y estarán listas para recoger en una fecha posterior.

Horacio Casillas was born in Chandler, Arizona and raised in Jalisco, Mexico for most of his childhood before his family moved back to the United States to San Angelo, TX. In 2013 he received his BFA in ceramics from Angelo State University and his MFA from the University of North Texas in 2018. Horacio’s most recent work is carved to represent cathedral windows and entryways inspired by Gothic architecture and the churches of his hometown of Tepatitlan, Jalisco. “Focusing my work through the lens of my Catholic faith has given me an appreciation for the traditions found in the Church including her influence on architecture.” Horacio is currently an Arrowmont 2021-22 Artist in Residence.
