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.


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