Masterclass Description

Join
accomplished ceramic artist Marianne Huhn in this one-day masterclass
at Northcote Pottery Supplies as she shares her making techniques and
inspirations underpinning her extraordinary porcelain works. In a
digital presentation Marianne will outline the development of her work
and ideas, discussing her early work to the work she is currently
creating. Marianne will demonstrate her method of throwing off the hump
during the morning session. In the afternoon she will discuss her ideas,
how she uses her sketch book and demonstrate her skills and materials
for creating her unique drawings. This is a rare opportunity to get
insight into how an accomplished artist has interpreted the ceramic
vessel in her own signature style, whilst gathering knowledge and
practical tips that could be used in your own studio practice. Lunch and
coffee/tea will be provided for all participants.

Marianne Huhn Artist Statement

For
some time now, I have been making functional ceramics with distinct
narrative surfaces. The drawn line and text have combined to create
themes and images ranging from architecture to political
commentary. Initially, I drew historical architecture to refer to the
similarities houses, castles, town walls, forts and dwellings have with
functional ceramics. The fact that they both contain space within their
walls was a visual clue to the narrative/conversation I was attempting
to establish. However, in 2012 I embarked on a PhD at RMIT Melbourne –
porcelain and politics in the 21st century. I began researching the
Russian revolutionary ceramics which was produced as propaganda from
1917-1927. I use a European porcelain body and throw formson the wheel. 
As a counterpoint to the industrialization of everyday shapes, I throw
to encourage a thoughtful relationship to form. Through making
individual objects of clay by hand, the sense of touch is recognized.
Slight differences in variations of a shape, a thick or thin rim, the
size and movement of a handle, encourage personal connections. My hand
has the learned ability to judge thickness of walls when throwing and
depth of line when etching on the surface. Often leaving a throwing line
or a mark that establishes my touch is important in the creation of
porcelain forms that often appear smooth and cold.

3D printing @ Northcote Pottery Supplies with Alterfact

 
Alterfact
is an design studio created by Lucile and Ben in 2014. Since graduating
from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2013, Lucile and Ben have worked
in tandem on various issues in different mediums. Alterfact explores
current and future issues and translates them into experiences,
installations and objects. They conduct critical research with materials
and data, and invite the viewer into their world. Our
background is in design, and we have a critical approach to making.
This means that we consider the manufacture of ‘stuff’: where it is
coming from and where it is going; how it is made and how it will be
used. Within Alterfact, Ben is more academic and research based, whereas
Lucile conducts more material research and translation to objects. 
 
Lucile
and Ben’s residency project @ Northcote Pottery Supplies was to build their own 3D Printer and
create a series of unique ceramic tableware using the printer. They
are harnessing the irregularities of 3D printing and working within its
limitations to create work that is pretty exciting and it has garnered a
lot of interest.
