June 20 - 24, 2016, 10:00am - 12:00pm, 1:00pm - 4:00pm each day

Knowing a few simple rules of ceramic chemical formulations allows you to unleash the potential for ceramic surfaces that support and develop new work. This workshop will focus on ceramic surfaces for cone 5 oxidation; discoveries made will then easily translate into other temperatures and atmospheres with small, thoughtful adjustments. This five-day, hands-on workshop is open to all levels. Participants are encouraged to focus on surface ideas they have been striving to achieve to make this workshop more individually productive.

Workshop Description - Pots/Possibilities with Nick Joerling
Course Description: Beginning with round pots coming from the wheel, we'll push, cut, coax, and stretch those form. Why alter pots? Tom Spleth nicely observed, "As work departs from thrown forms that typically refers to pots and pottery, it gains the ability to describe forms in nature, suggest the vulnerability of the figure, and express the asymmetry found in human experience." Our focus will be on utilitarian pots but we'll take some liberties with that notion too. Various ways of making handles, lids, and spouts will be explored.

Visiting Artist Lecture with George Bowes

Ceramics Studio - 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard
Slide Presentation: 12:00noon - 1:30pm

Join us in welcoming the prolific George Bowes to the Ceramics Program. George imbues both functional vessels and sculptural objects with bold pronouncements on the many ironies of humanity, society and politics. Occasionally biting, endlessly quick-witted, the sentiments always elicit lively reactions. His distinctive use of bold color and vivid pattern on vessels for home use speak of his ideas of beauty and vitality and live as a refreshing island in the landscape of functional art.
