This Workshop is a rare opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with internationally recognized ceramic artist Randy Johnston. In this workshop Randy will be making pottery within traditional concepts, with a focus on the exchange of ideas involved in making pots related to function. Demonstrations will cover the use of the wheel and the construction of forms by altering pieces and by using slabs and paper patterns. In addition he will share his thought process about why we make the objects we choose to make.
This will be an exciting workshop with lots of discussions about traditional and new ways of making, wood firing and its relationship to contemporary ceramics. We will view images of historical and contemporary work in ceramics, a personal slide lecture of time spent in Japan and Randy and Jan’s own studio and kilns in River Falls, Wisconsin.
