Project Description

3-Day Handbuilding Ceramics Workshop at the Takaezu Studio

Be  inspired working in the studio of one of the 20th century’s great ceramic artists.  This workshop is an intensive exploration of clay as a medium for sculpture. Slab and coil techniques will be demonstrated, with their pros and cons examined.  As participants build large-scale pieces, teachers will help with form, gesture and structure as well as encourage discussion of 3D art forms, such as:  Why make 3D art?  Why not stick to painting and drawing? Why use clay?

Each participant will produce at least one and perhaps several pieces during the first two days. The sculptures will be left at the studio to dry for a few weeks before being bisque fired by the instructors.  Then everyone will meet again for one final day of glazing.

Please note: This workshop is held at the Toshiko Takaezu Studio in Quakertown, NJ. Directions, tools, and all materials provided. Transportation not provided. Pre-registration is required. Early Registration Rewards do not apply for this workshop.
