Sift, Sort and Select
October 6, 2019 – October 12, 2019
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.
COURSE FEE: $600

She received her BFA from the Maine College of Art and an MFA from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
