CONCEPT: The table is a time-honored tradition. A place to gather, experience time, break bread with friends and mark the occasions of life. This dynamic team-taught workshop focuses on making objects for the table. Explore different approaches to setting the table: traditional vs. unconventional, Eastern vs. Western, formal vs. informal.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use porcelain and stoneware and slips and glazes in high-fire soda and gas kilns. Techniques include wheel throwing, basic plaster mold making with digital technologies, screen printing underglaze decals and soda firing.
ACTIVITIES: We engage in daily demonstration, handson activities and individual discussions.
