Ornate Objects And The Embellished Assemblage

July 19, 2020 – July 25, 2020

Kate Maury

This workshop will explore ornate surface embellishment and a variety of construction methods through press molds and slip casting. Students will create press molds from objects they bring to class as well as assemblages from slip cast craft molds they own. The exploration of surface through press molded textures enhances hand-built objects (and wheel thrown work) and assemblages from slip casted objects from hobby molds can be altered or added to create a dynamic narrative. Participants will be encouraged to explore and improvise. Open to all skill levels.


Kate Maury lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota where she is a studio resident at the Northern Clay Center and teaches full time as a professor in the School of Art and Design at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Maury received a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Her work is featured in both juried and invitational shows at national and international venues and is an exploration of surface and assembled cast objects.
