Finding Balance Between Innovation and Utility

August 12, 2018 – August 18, 2018

Jennifer Allen

This workshop focuses on inventive ways to approach the form and surface of utilitarian pottery. Play and experimentation are primary goals as participants slice, dice, bend, fold, stamp and decorate their way towards a new vocabulary of useful forms. Demonstrations include throwing, darting, stamp making, slip trailing and more. Discussions center on ergonomics, tactility, design and creative problem solving. Students can take home bisqued pots that they create and an arsenal of new texture tools. Participants are encouraged to bring sketches/source material of form and surface ideas. Basic wheel-throwing and/or hand-building skills are necessary.



COURSE FEE: $525
