    Kyle Johns Artist-In-Residence Workshop

    10:00am to 4:00pm

    Location: 

    Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA

    Kyle JohnsKyle Johns' playful works involve the precision found in high quality mold making and slip casting, while embracing the spontaneity of a keyless mold system. Unlike the repetition of industry’s use of slip casting, Kyle's molds are interchangeable allowing for each piece to be one of a kind. His technique of applying colored slip to plaster molds then binding them together for casting larger objects is a performance in itself. Participants will be encouraged to try their hand at layering colored casting slip onto plaster bats. This workshop is one in a series of three sessions in February with Ceramics Program 2019-20 Artists In Residence. 

    Artist Bio: Kyle Johns found his passion for working with clay at Oakton Community College. Kyle then transferred to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) where he began studying under Paul Dresang and Matt Wilt. Following undergraduate, Kyle received his Master of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University, studying with Brad Schwieger, Tom Bartel, Alex Hibbitt, and Chuck Mcweeny. While at Ohio University, Kyle participated in a six week residency at The International Ceramics Center in Kecskemet, Hungary. Kyle also was a studio assistant at Arrowmont School for the Arts and Crafts, returning several times as a workshop assistant. Kyle has been a resident at both Red Lodge Clay Center and the Archie Bray Foundation.... Read more about Kyle Johns Artist-In-Residence Workshop
