Workshop Description

Don ReynoldsExplore surface with one of the most colorful personalities in clay, Don Reynolds, who hails from the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY.  Reynolds tries to never produce pots that will match the sofa – unless you live in Pee Wee’s Playhouse. Driven by color, pattern and textures (and an outrageous sense of humor), Reynolds will demonstrate surface techniques using underglaze, wax and glaze that provide his distinctive bold surfaces. This workshop is perfect for those looking for a new direction for their work or interested in learning layering techniques using bright color that both sing and dance (don't be afraid to tip)!

Visiting Artist Workshop with Tom Jaszczak and Mike Helke

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

Mike Helke & Tom Jaszczak
L-R: Mike Helke; Tom Jaszczak

Join us for a two-person demonstration by Mike Helke and Tom Jaszczak prior to their joint exhibition at Lacoste Gallery  in Concord, MA, August 5-26.

Both artists explore the vessel in very distinctive ways – Tom Jaszczak celebrates utility through his sublime soda-fired, earthenware forms. His surfaces are inviting with bold graphic lines and bright color contrast the slip covered surface. “I want my pots to be grounded in form and have an identity as a material A successful pot has depth through these processes, obtains humbleness through form and thoughtfulness in function.”

Mike Helke creates bold form that play with the senses – working within two and three dimensions, appearing at times completely flat, only to reveal its volume as you when you handle and experience the work directly. Helke states, “Each piece physically and conceptually records an animate sensibility derived from my experiences. This record is the catalyst for a call and response relationship that exists between maker, object, and user.” Read more about Visiting Artist Workshop with Tom Jaszczak and Mike Helke
