The Porcelain Figure: Capturing Expression and Detail on an Intimate Scale

August 18 – 19, Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 4:30pm 
(Optional follow-up meeting: September 9, 1 – 4pm)

In this hands-on, fast-paced workshop, we will develop hand-building techniques to create small-scale figures in porcelain. Crystal Morey will discuss the development of her work, her artistic and art historical inspirations, and a step-by-step method of hand-building in the challenging medium of porcelain.

We will cover topics from planning a sculpture, the construction, adding delicate elements, to the final processes of drying and firing a complete piece. With an overview on proportion and anatomy, Morey will demonstrate figurative gesture, including the hands and face, and the tools and water content needed to achieve a high level of detail. 

This is a three-day workshop with two consecutive days of instruction, and a third day for sharing and questions. Through this intensive workshop, you will come away with new knowledge and skills, for creating sculptures in the magical clay of porcelain. All skill levels are welcome, please join us!

Serving The Table – Constructing Pots for Kitchen to Table

Sat. & Sun., October 27 - 28, 2018
10am – 4:30pm

Making pots for the table is both personal and universal and asks us, as makers, to consider decisions based on our culinary culture, function, and aesthetics. How do you serve at your table? What kinds of pots serve your ideas for presentation at the table? Where do those pots live while not in service? This weekend workshop gives participants the opportunity to explore a variety of wheel-formed serving pots. Altering from the round, handles that work both functionally and aesthetically, lids that fit, feet that lift, and more will be demonstrated and explored according to each student’s interest. Conversation about the function and aesthetics of serving pots and the food held within will be ongoing. This workshop is about the process of making and stretching our ideas. Glazing and firing techniques will be discussed.

This workshop is designed for students with a solid foundation in wheel-forming.
