Bisque Mold Basics

August 2, 2020 – August 8, 2020

Joseph Pintz

In this workshop students will design their own bisque molds and create hand-built earthenware vessels with a strong emphasis on form. The focus is on the creative exploration of form rather than finished results. You will explore the use of terra sigillata and glaze on utilitarian or sculptural work and get preliminary results fired in the electric kiln. Participants will also prepare a low-temperature soda firing. Open to all skill levels.


Joseph Pintz teaches at the University of Missouri in Columbia and earned his BA at Northwestern University and an MFA at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. His ceramic work explores the role that domestic objects play in fulfilling our physical and emotional needs. Pintz has been a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation and the Roswell Artist-in-Residence program.
