In this class you will be combining wheel thrown, hand built, slab and extruded work to create functional sculptures in unexpected ways. Sarah will also focus on how to find and build on one’s artistic voice, encouraging you to expand on ideas that elevate and highlight your own point of view.
Please bring to the workshop 3 thrown or hand built shapes
(1 cylinder, 1 bowl, 1 shape of choice) made with midfire clay in the soft leather hard stage.
Sarah’s work is rooted in process and investigation. Her pieces are both new while familiar, serious while playful. Somehow timeless while timely. Sarah received her degree in sculpture & ceramics in 2007, and founded her studio in 2014. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
Sharon is an artist who primarily uses clay to create wall and free- standing sculptures. The dualities of chaos and order, growth and decay, organic and mechanical are the inspiration for her work. Sharon has exhibited throughout California including, The Richmond Arts Center, The Irvine Fine Arts Center, SCAPE Gallery and Gallery 825. Her works also hang in private collections throughout the US! How neat!
She will be teaching and assisting students in creating a small relief wall hanging piece and going over the different techniques she uses to achieve the striking wall pieces that she is known for. This workshop includes Bmix clay with grog as well as bisque firing to non-members. If you need to arrange a glaze fire please let us know.
