Demo Workshop - Claymakers - Durham

Attention to Detail
Emily Reason

Saturday, July 9, 2011
10:00- 5:00

In this workshop, Emily Reason shares the techniques and principles she applies to her porcelain pots. As Emily demonstrates the process of throwing, altering, trimming, assembling and carving her pieces, she’ll 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.

Fee: $75
