In this hand-building class, we will explore the creation of ceramic wares specific to our personal food narratives of choice. We will learn various building techniques to help us translate our conceptual ideas into physical forms through design and function. This class will challenge us to create outside of conventional ideas of tableware, as well as emphasize building in multiples, surface design and glaze testing. Overall, we will focus on the presentation and interaction with our clay vessels, the food, and the consumer.
Junk in the Trunk is a multi-media multi-medium show featuring artists who work with any and all materials. From video, clay, to glitter and everything in-between! Craft often lives on the edges of the fine arts and multi-medium/media artists will even be on the outskirts of the outskirts. This show is a celebration of artists who live in that borderland. The queer, the othered, the funk, and the sub-cultured. These artists love material but will not care to “blasphemously” glue rhinestones to that dance.
