CERAMICS: SMOKE-FIRED GARDEN SCULPTURES AND CEREMONIAL FORMS WITH SUSAN RABER BRAY

Donkey Mill Art Center, 78-6670 Mamalahoa Hwy. Holualoa

Every Tuesday, Thursday @ 10 a.m.–noon
Six Sessions
Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays, February 7 - 23 from 10:00am - 12:00pm

In this workshop with visiting artist, Susan Raber Bray we will create garden sculptures and ceremonial forms, drawing inspiration from indigenous cultures worldwide. There is a sensuous, soft, and varied quality created by primitive firing. We will explore smoked-fired pottery using many different local materials: seaweed, sawdust, grasses and straw are just a few examples. We will share in the unpredictability and excitement that this firing process creates.

Students will have the opportunity to learn or expand their knowledge in hand building techniques: coil, pinch, slab or throwing on the wheel. We will burnish our pieces with terra sigillata, or colored slip. We will create surface designs using wax, tape, wire, brushes and tools for incising and sgraffito We will share in experiencing the joy in creating, and embrace the spontaneity of the natural smoke firing process.
