Above and Below the Surface: Surface Treatments and Imagery to Create Visually Dynamic Pots


During this two-day hands-on workshop, Diana will cover how to use multiple techniques, which when used together, create rich and graphically dynamic surfaces. Diana will show how she uses stencil resists with multiple substrates to create negative, positive, and relief images. She will also share how she creates reusable templates from her original drawings to use both as an image placement and composition tool. We will explore using slips, underglazes, terra sigillatas harvested from wild clay and glaze to create rich, painterly and layered effects that are both visually luscious and tactile to the touch. Diana will share her signature etching technique for creating expressive line-work in clay and will show us how to make carved bisque molds to add yet another textural dimension to pots. This workshop is designed for both wheel-throwers and hand-builders with at least some experience working with clay.
 
Diana Fayt is a modern-day scrimshaw artist whose chosen medium is clay rather than whalebone. Drawing on her background as a painter, sculptor, printmaker and clayer, her surfaces are alive with strange and exotic stories, part folklore and part personal narrative. Fayt’s work can be found in a myriad of public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad. She has been featured on the cover of Ceramics Monthly as well as in numerous international and American Publications, such as The Journal of Australian Ceramics, American Craft and Sunset Magazine. Her roster of clients include Heath Ceramics, Anthropologie and Terrain. A graduate of California College of the Arts, Diana currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.

Kathy King - A Conversation Between Form and Imagery
250.00

The Potters’ Studio presents a:
TWO-DAY WORKSHOP
with Kathy King


June 8 – 9, 2019     10am–4:30pm

Let’s Talk – A Conversation Between Form and Imagery


This two-day, hands-on workshop will center on building a personal vocabulary of imagery, working that imagery into a composition, and exploring application methods onto either wheel-thrown or hand-built ceramic plates or wall
pieces. With humor as a tool to create narratives within her work, King will introduce some non-traditional ideas about function and methods of storytelling. Students will incorporate their own imagery by carving through slip-colored clay (sgraffito). King will discuss hanging methods for wall pieces and plates and we'll experiment on leather-hard clay with transfer techniques using slips and newsprint and block-printing images onto clay. Glaze techniques to enhance and add color to sgraffito work will also be demonstrated. This workshop is designed for both wheel-throwers and hand-builders with at least some experience working with clay.

Hayne Bayless - Happiness is a Warm Extruder
250.00

The Potters’ Studio presents a:
TWO-DAY WORKSHOP
with Hayne Bayless


July 27 – 28, 2019     10am–4:30pm

Happiness is a Warm Extruder


In this two-day, hands-on workshop we'll explore extrusion and slab techniques as they relate to making functional stoneware. Our approach will be to let the processes show in the work; if we stay out of clay’s way, it will reveal its true nature and our results will be fresh and lively. We will work with unconventional forming methods and unusual approaches to surface decoration – myths will be busted and secrets revealed. Topics include: combining extrusions and slabs; making hand tools and brushes; latex resist decoration; cutting and printing with stencils made from Tyvek; colored slip inlay and stretched slabs; the basics of making custom extruder dies. This workshop is designed for both throwers and hand-builders with at least some experience working with clay. 

Hayne Bayless makes hand-built stoneware pottery in Ivoryton, CT. Other than lessons from a potter in Tokyo and a handful of classes and workshops, he has managed to avoid any formal instruction in ceramics. He abandoned wheel-throwing early on, preferring the freedom of hand-building afforded by slabwork and extrusions. His interest in clay began in high school and he worked independently learning from Bernard Leach’s A Potter’s Book. After a college career that spanned 4 schools and 7 attempted majors over 12 years, Hayne emerged with a degree in journalism. He worked as a newspaper reporter and editor in New Haven for 10 years. In 1992 he quit the newspaper and returned to working in clay. Hayne has been awarded the top prizes at two of the country's most prestigious craft shows: the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, D.C. and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. He teaches workshops all over the US and abroad.
