JOHN CALVER: "ALTERING & DECORATING THROWN FORMS"
DEMONSTRATION & SLIDE SHOW
June 15, 2002 9-6 PM
June 16. 2002 9-1 PM
If you've seen the December 2000 cover of "Ceramics Monthly" you'll know why
was so excited when John Calver agreed to do a workshop here, especially
he comes all the way from England! His forms enchant the eye; his rich,
colorful decorations inspire reverence for such an accomplished glazer.
In this one and a half day workshop John will demonstrate a variety of
throwing, clay-handling and decorating techniques he uses in his own work.
Freshly-thrown forms are altered while still on the wheel, or are removed to
be stretched, or cut and re-assembled. Various different types of handles
feet (pulled, wire-cut or coiled) are added at leather hard stage. He
glaze decoration on the wheel with ribbing, chattering, inlay and fabric
impression, and continues at leather hard stage using sponged and trailed
slips and paper resist.These processes will be applied to functional items
such as plates, dishes, bowls, jugs, bottles and candleholders.
Whether you work on the wheel or handbuild, there will be something new to
enliven and inspire your own work.
