In this workshop I’ll share my passion for and the continued excitement I find in forming pieces for atmospheric kilns. Showing some of my favorite clay forming techniques, (coil and throw additions, faceting, and cutting feet), I'll demonstrate a technique I’ve personalized for making a lidded jar.

Interwoven with the forming of clay, is working in the less physical or material realm; the birth and life of ideas, formation of self, creation of meaning, of community and world. As an artist/potter I work and play with these concerns using tools of metaphor, analogy, and critical thought.

How do we move our work and ideas forward? What touchstones can provide insight and perspective for ceramic artists to help us connect deeply to both the larger human story, and our contemporary context. I’ll share how histories, myths and traditions all inform and root my personal studio practice.

You Will Learn:

  1. Technique to make an enclosed form become a lidded jar on a potters wheel.
  2. How to fit slips to clays and utilize crackle slips for bisque and green-ware.
  3. Ways for listening to, learning from and moving forward with your work.

Participants should have a way to take notes and record questions.

The Zoom Demonstration will be recorded and sent out to all registrants if you want to attend but have a scheduling conflict during the live demonstration.  

Since this is an online workshop, you will need to have a computer, tablet, or phone that can run video conferencing in a browser or app.
