Master of The Art with Kristen Keiffer

at The Clay Art Studios

$450 - Members

Elegant & Ornate: Form & Surface

Our workshop will focus on altering wheel-thrown (or hand-built) forms a little and a lot. We will then embellish those forms with an array of decoration techniques from stamping and slip-trailing to sponging and resists. The result can be functional or sculptural, minimal, or extravagant.  You will leave the workshop with a collection of new skills and the confidence to play and draw from your own influences. You will also take home a grouping of bisqued stamps and pieces showing your explorations for the week.

Demonstrations include throwing, altering and building off the wheel, darting, and a variety of decoration techniques including: slip-trailing, stamp-making, and stamping. We will discuss aesthetics and proportion, timing in clay, idea-generation, progressing one’s own work with learned techniques, and studio ergonomics.

This workshop and its techniques are equally suitable for both throwers and hand-builders.

Basic wheel-throwing and/or hand-building skills necessary.

National Call for Entry: "Better Together – Ceramic Sets"

Celadon Clay Art Gallery & Shop is pleased to present Better Together – Ceramic Sets, a national juried exhibition with juror Hayne Bayless. Through the concept of “sets”, the selected entries will illuminate and illustrate unity and harmony as exemplified by the relationship of individual pieces to one another whether through shape, size, color or any other concept or theme.

            I've always liked the idea of a group of objects that go together, though it might not be an obvious similarity that connects them. They are better together, as this show's title suggests, but also stronger together. Each is an individual as well as part of a “community”.

            The other delightful aspect to a "set" is that it implies togetherness. It usually means company, bringing people together to share in a toast, a meal, or a celebration. 

            Greater than the sum of its parts. – Hayne Bayless
