Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay
In this two-day workshop Adam Field will demonstrate his methods for carving intricate pattern on a variety of wheel-thrown porcelain forms. He will also demonstrate traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle pottery techniques. From ancient Korean techniques, to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Participants will learn new skills for mapping out and carving
geometric patterns in clay. Generous discussions about studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice.
Forrest will share means of creating and applying detailed imagery through silkscreen transfers that he creates for tile, and the Volumetric image transfer process he has developed for applying imagery to pots during the wheel throwing process. Forrest will discuss his tile work, and recent collaboration with Iranian Calligrapher Arash Shirinbab, and he will demonstrate both single and multi-part wheel thrown forms such as bottles, teapots, jars, and cups with saucers
