Studio Masterclass: Blending Clay / 23rd June

£220.00

11am–6pm

This is a full-day masterclass held at my studio in Margate, UK.

Over the course of the day, you will learn how to devise and blend your own clay bodies and how to use them to produce a range of tones, textures and handling characteristics.

After an introduction to the studio and my practice, you will learn about the material qualities of clay bodies and explore the key principles of blending different clay types before preparing a range of sample blends to use during the afternoon.

In the second half of the class there will be demonstrations of the throwing techniques behind a selection of my forms, and you will spend the afternoon at the wheel, creating test pieces and exploring the throwing qualities of the blended clays prepared in the earlier session.

All equipment and materials will be supplied and firing can be arranged for work made during the class.

Some throwing experience is necessary.

Lunch will be provided.

There are only two places available for each day.

Details on location and directions will be given after booking.

Cancellations: As places are limited, no refund will be given for cancellations if your space cannot be reallocated. Please contact me before making your booking if you have any queries.

Photo of Crucible

Crucible

£125.00

420mm x 297mm
Signed and Numbered Recto
Risograph Print

Uncoated, recycled stock

Edition of 25 plus 2 Artist's Proofs

Unframed

Crucible is a modular series based on a simple form; a round-bottomed cylinder, which can be resized for different functions. This drawing shows the key modification to an otherwise very basic shape; the circle that defines the curved underside is slightly offset above the centre point of the vessel, giving it lightness and lift.

These drawings are not designs as such, but an attempt to understand and consolidate 12 months of work throwing pots at the wheel, to identify a set of geometric rules and mechanisms which describe the refined forms and provide a framework for future exploration.

They are printed on a naturally off-white/grey paper with occasional flecks, and are designed to be framed against brilliant white to accentuate these qualities. If you would like to use my framing specifications, please get in touch.

Arc is a series of footed bowls with flowing, continuous profiles, which unfurl, becoming shallower and wider, as they increase in size. The curves are defined as part of the intersection of two circles, which can be repositioned to create the profiles for a range of vessels.
