Landscape Fragments: experiments with texture in clay
June 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Working with porcelain this evening workshop will explore the possibilities for working with pattern and texture in clay. Using Hilary’s ‘Fragile Landscape’ pots as an inspiration we will create two dimensional but layered pieces.
Hilary LaForce makes one-off ceramic pieces inspired by both natural objects and ancient classical vessels. Hilary works in stoneware and porcelain clays, with tactile, textural surfaces. The larger pieces are coil built, others are created using a combination of techniques, including slip casting and slab building. The forms include large bowls and vases, the bowls, up to 26 inches in diameter, a range of small tea bowls, as well as more organic forms, including the ‘fragile landscape’ series where the mark of the making is integral within the piece.
Materials will be provided but participants are welcome to bring items which might work as texture making tools eg Lace, natural objects, shells, tree bark, etc.
