Fundamental Questions of Utilitarian Pots with Michael Connelly and Alleghany Meadows
Tuition $830 (includes $95 lab fee)
Maximum enrollment 15
Open to intermediate and advanced artists
This two-week intensive hands-on workshop will be an immersion into making, thinking and asking questions about utilitarian pottery. Using primarily the potter’s wheel, Michael Connelly and Alleghany Meadows will explore ideas and take students on a journey through various approaches to utilitarian forms and surfaces. They will conduct daily demonstrations, discussions and one-on-one instruction as well as present historical and contemporary examples. Participants will use the two weeks to evolve their personal strategies and aesthetics. Connelly and Meadows will also discuss topics such as sustaining a lively studio practice, social outreach as an artist and considerations when setting up a studio. Students will have the ability to work with both high-fire porcelain and stoneware and fire work in reduction and salt kilns.
Connelly and Meadows will give a public artist talk on Wednesday, June 21 at 7:30 pm in the Bray Resident Center
