22A-2020 – Isabella Fazzo – Double Face and Double Function

May 24 – 30, 2020

Experiment and joy in a course that stimulates freedom of expression.

Handbuilding. For all

Introduction

In this course we will work with low temperature clays, stains and colored clays. The partial use of glaze allows for great versatility in the designing of the objects. Our guideline will be the double face, meaning that we will strive to conceive objects that have a double function, such as a bowl that may have a different live as a decorative panel.

Techniques taught

We will be handbuilding, using plaster molds and stencils. Those interested and already capable in throwing may use the potter’s wheel. Stains will be incorporated into the clay bodies; the clay will be stretched and twisted and furthermore, inlay may be applied. In other words, our aim will be the creation of personal, expressive slabs, for the creation of objects that are multi-functional. 

Teaching method

Isabella Fazzo’ s demos on her unique coloring and construction techniques will be complemented by reflections on form and functionality and on how these concepts can interact freely, without a pre-established approach. As a result, each student will be stimulated to study multifunctional forms, creating an active and participatory relationship with objects. Willingness to experiment is most appreciated.

Multi-functional forms can be:

  • Trays or bowls that become an installation or panel to hang on a wall.
  • Reversed bowls or cups that become candle holders.
  • A panel with flexible components that may be turned into placemats.
  • Pillows that become containers.
