THE PRINTED FIGURE: combining figurative ceramic sculpture and surface development

OCTOBER 5-8, 2021 (Tuesday-Friday)

Location: Córdova Studios, Bakersville (Penland), NC

In this unique course you will both hone your sculpting abilities and learn techniques to enliven your figurative works with rich, dynamic surfaces.

We will start by building a 20” figure from the pelvic area up using simple patterns and photographic references to anchor our sculptural process. Demos will cover slab construction and articulation of the hip area, upper torso, arms, hands, head, and neck. We will cover anatomical concepts and modeling strategies used to facilitate accuracy and expression.

Transitioning into surface development, we will use slips and underglazes combined with newsprint and tissue transfers to create an assortment of test tiles that will inform both your primary sculpture and future work at home.
