In this demonstration workshop, Emily Reason shares the techniques
and principles she applies in making porcelain pots. Demonstrations
include her process of throwing, trimming, carving, brush-working and
embellishing her pieces. Emily will share tips for working with porcelain
and explain how she makes decisions about form and surface in her work.
As potters, our initial objective is to create forms that are conducive to
function. Emily believes that when surface details are given thoughtful
consideration of the form and pots are crafted with care, artistic voices are
exposed. As a group we’ll discuss our motivation for making pottery, from
inspiration to making a living as a potter. A slide presentation of Emily’s
work and experiences will also be given.
