FSU Art Adjunct Professor Marty Fielding will be teaching at Penland School of Crafts October 8-14.
From the Penland Catalog: Handbuilding: Source, Construction & Color
This workshop will explore slab building techniques. In it, the group will look at visual and conceptual sources—ceramic and non-ceramic—as starting points for making personal work. Forming techniques will include paper templates, drop molds, and a variety of approaches to handles, lids, and spouts. Surface considerations will emphasize building depth for electric firing, and harnessing the aesthetic and expressive potential of color. We’ll have daily demonstrations and group and one-on-one conversations with an emphasis on creative problem solving.
