We have been fortunate to have Adam Field from Helena, Montana, agree to come and lead our annual workshop on February 18th and 19th, 2017 (10am – 4pm) at ArtSpring. If you google him, you will find information and photos about his work and experience. Check out Instagram and Pinterest as well (www.adamfieldpottery.com).
In this two-day workshop, Adam Field will demonstrate his methods of carving intricate pattern on a variety of wheel-thrown porcelain forms. He will also demonstrate traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle pottery techniques. From ancient Korean techniques to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Participants will learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns in clay. Generous discussions about studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice.
The fee for the workshop is $100. Please send a check to the Salt Spring Potters Guild (www.saltspringpottersguild.com) at:
