DNA of Clay: Discovering Your ClayArt Antecedents and Future Possibilites – G191027

Workshop ID: G191027
Dates: October 6 - October 12
Price: $675.00 - $1,195.00

Single supplement is not available for this retreat. Week 1: The Agenda of this workshop is to elevate your creative abilities in clay art whatever your current level. You are the raw material to freshly shape – discovering potentials you may not be aware.

Individual tutorials, demonstrations, discussions and PowerPoint presentations. We will work with cone 6 stoneware. Sculptural form will be emphasized and surface embellishment/decoration will be subordinated. Hand-building, wheel-throwing, and combined techniques will be utilized. We will re-envision traditional functional forms and imagery, concentrating on the spouted vessel. Beginners welcome. Please note: Week 2 of this workshop has been canceled. 

“Animal imagery is the enduring subject of my art, and it is often intertwined with social and political commentary, eroticism, and humor. While I am interested in form and the vitality of expression, decoration, for its own sake, has never interested me. I look to the masterworks of the past for inspiration, particularly the Moche of Peru, Han Chinese, African Art, early Mediterranean ceramics, and lately, the powerful artistry of the Native Americans of the Southwest.” – Joe Bova
