Kathy King - Surfing with Clay: A Narrative Approach
(Some clay experience preferred)
June 5 - 16, 9am to 4pm each day

Has the information age boggled your mind with a constant
barrage of images and idea? Well, I say "if you can't beat 'em,
join 'em," and do it with clay. Join me in sorting through the
muck of the new millennium to investigate creating ceramic work
that is a vehicle for concept and narrative. This workshop will
explore using information presented through form and surface as
well as how the piece is viewed. From the initial concept to
the finished product, we will investigate creating specific
settings for our work. We'll look at taking the work off the
pedestal through using site-specific and installation techniques
on both large and small scale. Building techniques will include
combining both thrown and hand built elements as well as tile
work. Both sculptural and functional concerns will be discussed
with emphasis placed on surface. Carving techniques, press and
sprig molds, slip, under glazes, and glazes using mid-range
porcelain will be used. Individuals will create their own work
as well as participate in a group project to be given to CIA at
the conclusion of the workshop.

Julia Galloway - Wheel Thrown Pottery (Beg to Advanced)
June 19-30, 9am to 4pm each day

In this class we will learn how to make utilitarian pots using
both the pottery wheel and hand building techniques. We will
work with a variety of forms for both daily and specialty use.
In addition to making pottery, we will focus on glaze surfaces
and decoration of form. We will see slides of contemporary and
historical ceramics briefly each day. We will also discuss the
creative process and issues of being a craftsman today.
