Vessel: Narrative Container

September 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018

Jessica Brandl

In this workshop students create sculptural vessels with attention to storytelling, narration, mythology, symbolic language, history, drawing, painting and sculpture. The exploration of various methods and concepts allows students to compose a dynamic sculptural vessel. Specific techniques explored include the translation of drawing via transfer, stencil and direct mark making in clay, and design methods. Participants should come to class with preliminary drawings and a story to work from. Open to all skill levels.


Jessica Brandl lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where she is the Artist-in-Resident for the Alberta Collage of Art and Design.

Brandl was recognized as one of six Emerging Artists at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts in 2017 and is the recipient of the Zanesville Prize for best vessel. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
