Concept:

In this workshop, participants focus on developing hand built vessel forms with a simplified palette, both literally and metaphorically. Coursework aims to transcend utilitarian concerns and highlight the unique place the ceramic vessel commands as a bridge to sculptural conversations. Using porcelain paper clay and bisque molds, students embrace a high degree of intentionality, an opportunity to approach vessel making from a sculptor’s perspective. Surface exploration includes a small selection of glazes, patterning and image generation.

Media:

Mid-range paper porcelain, slips, glazes, cone 6 oxidation and wood salt firing.

Faculty:

David Eichelberger is a Professor of Ceramics at Marlboro College in southern Vermont. He co-runs TWO-ONE Ceramics with his wife, artist Elisa DiFeo. David received his MFA from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln and exhibits his work nationally.
