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!

Momoko Usami Workshop @ Lillstreet

For those of you unfamiliar with Momoko’s ceramic works, she creates sculpturally functional ceramics that are clever, kinetic and playful. Her work ranges from cups, mugs and vases to large scale sculptural work. Momoko’s approach to clay is truly unique and the works speak to that.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn to translate personal narratives to your forms and surfaces. Momoko will demonstrate basic building techniques and surface techniques such as slip inlay and sgraffito to create your narrative wares.

All levels are welcome in this workshop. Plus, there’s one week left for early bird pricing. Register now through August 1, and save $50 on the workshop cost.
