Artist Talk with Daniel Johnston at the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design in Asheville on Thursday, October 1
Here's the info from the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design:
Potter Daniel Johnston of Seagrove, NC will be presenting on his creative process from digging local clay to creating installations of large, wood-fired vessels.
This artist talk is held in conjunction with Johnston's 'Made in WNC' installation, '783-804', on view at CCCD October 1 – 29, 2015.
Johnston will create an immersive architectural environment using ceramic vessels to reverse the role of viewer and object.
About Daniel Johnston:
Daniel Johnston began his career as a potter apprenticing with Mark Hewitt in North Carolina. He has trained with Clive Bowen in England, as well as studied traditional large jar-making techniques in Sawein Silikom’s jar factory in Northeast Thailand. Daniel is now working with installation art that examines craft through the context of art. Daniel Johnston Pottery was established in 2003 in Seagrove, North Carolina. The pottery focuses on functional wood-fired tableware made from local materials as well as large-scale ceramic vessels.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
