Porcelain on Pottery – G201021

This unique workshop explores the possibilities in the delicate and elusive nature of porcelain on pottery. For those participants who already know how to throw, we will use a combination of thrown forms with hand-building alterations. Those who have not used the wheel will explore the many options and variations that can be used with strictly handbuilt forms. Our glazes and underglazes will be very simple and exceedingly elegant. We will be firing at high temperatures and in a reduction atmosphere, so caution is needed. This course will be geared to all levels.
Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

While we all love the familiar and take comfort in what we know, life is also about taking chances and experiencing the new...expanding horizons. You may think you recognize this collection of workshops as many of the instructors are old friends but take a closer look. Every one of these offerings is unique for the ranch and for this year. So, come, delve into new clay finishes, sketch off the beaten path, weave a different pattern, and celebrate being you. Come home to the familiar and try something expansive.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?
  • Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.

    Barbara Campbell is an experienced potter whose beautiful work can be seen in galleries throughout the area and on the El Rito Studio Tour. She teaches regularly and has been selling her work at the Ghost Ranch weekend mercados for several years.

    “When I went off to college, I planned to study to become a foreign diplomat, but when I took a pottery class elective in my first year all my plans changed. I was so fascinated by the material I transferred into Fine Arts and got my degree in Ceramics. I have been exploring the infinite facets of pottery making ever since. I have lived and worked in the village of El Rito for over thirty years making a living as a potter. I spend part of each summer and a month in the winter teaching pottery at The Ghost Ranch Conference center near Abiquiu, New Mexico. My current work is mainly in functional Stoneware pieces, but I spend a few months each year doing sculptural work. My newest work is inspired by a twenty-five day river trip through the Grand Canyon as well as various Canyonlands hiking and back packing trips. I find daily stimulation from the beautiful landscape right here at home.”
