Tom Jaszczak

4:00 – 6:00 p.m. ET

Tuition: $125
All Levels

During this 2 day, 2-hour demonstration Tom Jaszczak will show several making techniques.  He will show how he approaches wheel throwing/altering on the wheel to give your work a sense of geometry trimming work off the wheel.  Hand building demonstrations will include using drape molds and bisque molds to build small/large forms using plywood cutouts as a template.  This process has several creative tangents to explore.  If there is time a small surface demonstration will go over tape/wax resist decorating and discuss his approach to experimental firing temperatures.

This session will demonstrate how soft slabs can be manipulated to rapidly build basic shapes to create life-like animal forms.  Techniques on darting, stretching, paddling, and slump-molding will be explored in addition to methods of assembling complex forms for stronger structural attachments.  Tips on eyes and noses will be covered as well as quick methods for creating fur-like texture. Students will have the opportunity to practice these techniques and participate in a follow-up zoom meeting to compare results and discuss matters relevant to the demo and their own art.

Pinch Pot/ Teapot

Candice Methe
January 9 & 16, 2021
1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

Tuition: $125


All Levels

A teapot is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding functional objects to make in clay. If we take it slow and start from the bottom up we can have fun and consider all the parts. In this zoom class I will discuss the components of a successful teapot and demonstrate how to build one. We will create the body using the coil and pinch method and I will demonstrate different options for flanges, galleries, lids as well as different spouts and handles.

Candice Methe is a full time studio artist originally from Falmouth, MA. Currently she lives in Helena, MT, where she is a long term resident at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts.
