Clay Studio
October 20-26, 2014 (Monday-Friday, 9:15 am-12:15 pm) — Students learn building, throwing, glazing and firing skills while creatively pushing an idea beyond the expected. Through the common challenge of creating anthropomorphic vessels, incorporating human-like qualities as subtle as an implied gesture or as direct as the human form, we will explore hand-building construction using coil, pinch, slab and extrusion methods, as well as wheel throwing. These varied approaches offer many options for creating sculptural, architectural, narrative, nesting and transitional forms. Students are encouraged to use as many building methods as desired. Using fire, paper, sawdust and even horse hair, the smoke of the raku firing process creates unexpected and unique finishing results that are an exhilarating conclusion to the processes of this workshop. Evening firing schedule will be assigned. Visit website

Adam will demonstrate the techniques he uses when creating his miniature 'sketches' of the figure in clay. Perfect for the beginning figure sculptor or for anyone who wants uninterrupted time to sculpt from a model. Participants will learn about: techniques for sculpting figures, using a model as reference, capturing the gesture in clay, composition, and expression.
