Description

THE SECRET LIQUID STATE OF ALL THINGS: ABSTRACTION IN CLAY
Matt Goldberg
8 sessions >> Saturdays, June 9–July 28
10am–1pm, Studio 106, $385
No prerequisite. All skill levels welcome

This course focuses on the ceramic process and artist responses to the medium, where experimentation is highly encouraged. We will explore different methods of working, including; coil building and slab construction, as well as uses of slip, and glazing techniques. In addition to canonical and contemporary ceramic artists, we will investigate the ways in which water shapes landscape, melting points in relationship to kiln firings, and the slippage between states of matter. Classes will include presentations of artists, working demonstrations, collaborative exercises, working with and against gravity, and embracing the physicality of a ceramics studio.
