some amazing upcoming workshops @ Mudfire

With Chandra DeBuse
you will learn to push your artwork further with a variety of building
techniques for wheel and hand-building and a surface vocabulary that
will take your work all the way to stunning.

Jason Bige Burnett brings
a little technical innovation in a very DIY way – he shows approachable
screen and slip transfer techniques that will have you layering images
in no time!

Kirsten Stingle’s
approach to the figure is both anatomical and philosophical. She will
teach you how to use proper human proportion but also how expression can
create narrative and emotion in figurative work. Plus her techniques
for heads and hands are amazing!!!

Kathy King
is a witty and informative instructor who will demonstrate how to
create story, narrative, and humor while also showing techniques to get
your work to the next level – literally – she’ll be focusing on stacking
work and using components to build – Students can hand-build or throw
for this class.

And Finally Katharine Morling wraps
up our workshop season. She’ll be visiting from England – bringing her
truly delightful technique of working from sketches into slabs. She’ll
be working with you in porcelain and she makes some absolutely
incredible work.

Mugs for Jugs @ Mudfire

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the only breast cancer organization to earn the highest rating from both non-profit watchdogs Charity Navigator and the American Institute of Philanthropy. Over 90% of their budget goes directly to research & awareness programs. We are proud to support their efforts and hopeful about meeting the goal of achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. Mugs for Jugs is a national invitational exhibit, with over 50 artists accepting our call to join arms in the battle against breast cancer. We are overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support of our artist friends from around the country. MudFire instructor Emily Downey conceived the event and is a key part of the effort to realize it. The show will present the largest and most significant collection of clay artists in a single exhibit in Atlanta this year. Each artist has chosen their contribution level to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with MudFire matching their contribution. On average, over 40% of each sale will be donated. We are still adding to the roster of participating artists, which currently includes: Autumn Higgins, Beau Raymond, Becky Strickland, Brooke Noble, Chandra DeBuse, Debra Fritts, Dow Redcorn, Emily Downey, Emily Reason, Erik Haagensen, Gay Smith, Jennifer Graff, Jeremy Randall, John Britt, John Roberts, Joy Tanner, Julia Galloway, Julie Wiggins, Justin Rothshank, Kathy King, Kathy Phelps, Keith Phillips, Kristen Kieffer, Kyle Carpenter, Lana Wilson, Leah Leitson, Linda McFarling, Lisa Orr, Lora Rust, Lori Buff, Luba Sharapan, Maria Andrade Troya, Mark Issenberg, Mark Knott, Mary Briggs, Megan Daloz, Mike Yarnold, Niel Hora, Ron Philbeck, Ronan Peterson, Sarah Anne Marraffino, Shadow May, Stacey Stanhope, Vernon Smith, and William Baker.
