10:00am to 5:00pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Workshop Description:

Sculptor Kyungmin Park will demonstrate the construction of her figurative sculptures in porcelain in this one-day workshop. Park will demonstrate how to achieve crisp lines and clean, tight surfaces with simple tools. She will also explore conceptual ideas and talk about the importance of facial expression and symbology within her work. From Park, "A child's untamed imagination can create a new and exciting owrld out of a single object. The combination of an uncorrupted point of view, a strong imagination, overflowing curiosity, and the desire to push boundaries creates a very special mindset particular to children. The adult world, by contrast, restrains the formally infinite imagination by imposing responsibilities and practical concerns. Society puts limits on the way we, as individuals, can perceive things, and as an artist I an interested in expanding these confines."
