Mixed-Media Strategies: Wood and Clay
This workshop will spend one week in the Ceramics studio and one week in the Wood studio. Ceramic and wood are each seductive and revered craft materials in their own right. Wood has been relied on and valued for centuries as a building material and the history of ceramics goes as far back as the dawn of agriculture. Together, they are an unstoppable force, a combination that can be seamless and complimentary when done right. This class delves into various strategies for bringing together ceramic and wood elements. Sculpture and formal composition are the primary focus but the techniques explored have vast applications for vessel makers, designers, woodworkers and ceramicists. Participants walk away with heightened appreciation for display and a deeper understanding of two uniquely compelling materials.
