Whether you’re interested in making multiples of objects out of clay or using them as pieces for sculptural and/or installation work, this class will cover basic mold-making techniques with plaster. Through demonstrations, studio time, and creative assignments, students will learn how to make plaster molds, cast them in clay, as well as basic ceramics construction and glazing. Looking at these techniques through both a design and contemporary fine arts lens, you will walk away with completed personal projects in multiple.
Working primarily in ceramics and painting, Cathy Lu's work revolves around the manipulation of traditional Chinese art imagery and presentation as a way to explore how this imagery is seen and understood in the US, and how ideas of cultural ‘authenticity’ and ‘tradition’ interface with contemporary experiences. She received her BFA from Tufts University and her MFA from SFAI. She is a 2015 SFAC Individual Arts Commission Recipient, a 2016 Eureka Fellowship Nominee, and a 2017 Artist In Resident at Recology in SF. She currently lives and work in SF.
