This workshop centers on the human form as a powerful expressive motif in ceramic sculpture. Combining craft and emotional effect, Jinsik shares his method of developing 3D sculptural forms from collaged 2D renderings and composite sketches. Participants are encouraged to explore different ways of expressing their ideas through clay in the development of their own personal symbolism and storytelling. Handbuilding, slab-building, surface treatment, and glazing accompany lectures and discussions that investigate how the photographic image can expand the possibilities for making clay sculptures.
