Event description

Description

Wednesdays, January 17 and 31 (two-part workshop)
6:30 pm–9 pm each day


In this unique workshop inspired by the Museum exhibition Screens: Virtual Material, participants will transfer photographic images on hand-built ceramic forms making them into clay “screens.” Session 1 will focus on building a tile, plate, coaster, or abstract flat form. Session 2 will use Pyrofoto’s transfer process to print a photograph of your choosing onto the surface of your ceramic form using available light.

Resident ceramic artist Bruce Barry will provide individual guidance with personally designed projects. All materials are provided and firing is included. You may bring your own photographs or choose from a selection provided.

No ceramic experience necessary, and all levels are welcome.

Ages 16+


Limit: 12

Members: $80; Not-Yet-Members: $90

Cancellation Policy: A $50 non-refundable registration fee is included in the registration. We do not issue refunds to workshops missed by the student.

About the Instructor

Resident artist Bruce Barry is a studio arts graduate from Bates College with advanced coursework in ceramics, etching, drawing, and painting. Barry’s teaching style encourages individual experimentation and personal growth and exposes students to contemporary art and ceramics practice. His work consists of organic, vessel-like ceramic pieces with painted-on writings declared as journal entries.

A finalist for the Massachusetts Cultural Council Crafts Grant in 2007, Barry has taught at deCordova since 1997. Bruce Barry is represented by Clark Gallery, Lincoln, MA and Elaine Baker Gallery, Boca Raton, FL.

Barry leads workshop participants in the development of hand-built sculptural works for architectural and natural environments. Along with deCordova’s emphasis on sculpture, our ceramic workshops focus on the sculptural possibilities of clay inspired by the ever-changing works in the Museum galleries and 30-acre Sculpture Park.
