2012 Guest Artist Terry Buck will teach participants to enhance the surface of their hand built functional forms using a variety of common objects. Together we will make several tools for their own studios.
Bridget Hauser will teach a ‘basic to beautiful’ workshop, beginning in the morning with sharing tips on basic throwing technique and finishing the afternoon with surface adornments. The afternoon will focus on , handles, chattering, carving, and appliqué’s moving basic forms to beautiful pots.
Randy Brodnax will wow you in the firing of alternative kilns and surface techniques. This year the “Little Wiggler” will make an appearance. This petite version of the glowworm that is built on the ‘5 gallon bucket’ instead of the ’50 gallon drum’ scale is one you can entertain doing in your drive way! Randy will share his expertise in alternative approaches to fire, surface, life and food.
Billy Ray Mangham will focus on figurative sculpture but this time we’ll be making animals. Dog, cat, ferret, you name it, we’ll attempt it. Billy Ray will present three different processes – each one designed to give students the techniques they need to construct the animal of choice. Participants may bring pictures of their dog or cat or favorite animal or just work from an image in their minds.
