Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay w/ Visiting Artist Adam Field #828

In this two-day demonstration-based workshop, Adam Field will demonstrate his methods for carving intricate patterns on a variety of wheel-thrown porcelain forms. He will demonstrate traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle pottery techniques. From traditional techniques to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Participants will learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns and will have a hands-on opportunity to try out Field’s techniques and tools for themselves. Generous discussions about studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice. This class is open to all skill levels! Note: Please bring a notebook/sketchbook and pen/pencil.
