Ephemerality is rarely associated with ceramics. However, an increasing number of artists are focusing on raw clay’s physical qualities, transformative capabilities, and connection to place. During Watershed 2019 Summer Residency Session I: Ephemerality in Clay, participating artists from around the country and abroad will explore clay in its impermanent state* through studio-based work and site-specific installations. Join this group in Watershed’s factory, fields, and forest to make work and discuss the benefits and challenges of using temporal materials.
