Abstract sculpture. Non beginners
I would like this workshop to focus around the idea of duality, complicity, twinship and conversation.
The participants will think about the dialogue between two forms and what they question, incite, propulse and teach us. We will imagine how to connect, attach, stack, lean, associate, intertwine two distinct forms and experience their change in perception and meaning.
We will begin the workshops with discussions and by looking at other artists work. I will also do an image presentation of my work and speak about my own preoccupations and how I’ve investigated different ways of conveying those interests through my ceramics.
I will then encourage the students to explore their own forms and associations by drawing and making models. The question of space will also be an important factor to include in their research.
They will then begin her/his full-scale investigations. Although I personally use coils and slabs, the use of any technique is possible. I will work individually with each student pushing them to explore a multitude of possibilities while at the same time keeping in accordance with their own personality and concerns.
There will be the question of firings, painting and decorating techniques as the work develops. By the use of color, graphics and different firing possibilities, they will experiment the most pertinent way of treating their surfaces to strengthen or soften their ideas. I propose that they work on a small scale in order to make several pieces and develop their own language and experiment the most appropriate technique and approach.
The drawings and models will be displayed as the workshop unfolds. At the end of each day, we will exchange and discuss their work and its implications.
