Kari Radasch

This workshop is about making pots and working towards a personal vision. We will make and surface pottery forms using earthenware clay, terra sigillata. and commercial underglaze. Students will search out forms, imagery and surfaces that resonate with them in a meaningful way. We will explore many making techniques: bisque molds, coiling, pinching, slab construction and light throwing. Each student will be encouraged to uncover a unique, personal vision. You will leave the workshop with new pots and new ways of making and approaching your work and ideas.  This is not an introductory class to throwing. Open to all skill levels.


Kari Radasch lives and pots in Portland, Maine and is a mosaic artist, tile maker and educator. She received her BFA from the Maine College of Art and an MFA from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Using earthenware clay, color as a metaphor for joy, an occasional historical reference, and an ironic nod to kitsch, Radasch makes both celebratory and jubilant work. She teaches workshops across the country and loves to share her excitement for clay with her students.
