Bridging the Gap: Traditional Techniques Made Modern – Workshop

Want to take your pottery forms to the next level? Want to put a contemporary twist on your traditional forms? Want to learn how to develop a personal style? Join fellow ceramic enthusiasts on October 13–15th at Queen City Clay in Cincinnati, Ohio for a dynamic workshop and learn from four professional ceramic artists: Tony Clennell, Josh DeWeese, Liz Howe, and Didem Mert. 
The presenters will explore and teach contemporary ideas on the following:
  • combining soft slabs, coils, pinching, and bisque molds to build functional forms
  • how to use terra sigillata, slips, and underglazes together on the same surface
  • throwing large forms and drastically altering them to create fresh ideas
  • composite throwing: combining various pieces together to create one vessel
  • extreme handles: thrown, pulled, and handbuilt handles
  • how to cut out stencils to create pictures using the functional clay form as a canvas
  • and, a whole lot more!
