HWC Professor Paul Wandless had a busy and productive summer. He taught two workshops, among other things.
Thank you, Paul for sharing – see his note and photos below!
I wanted to tell you I gave two workshops over the Summer.
One was at a 2-week workshop at Oxbow School of Art in Saugatuck, MI June 7 – 20th (www.ox-bow.org), which is connected to SAIC. Thomas Lucas, an adjunct instructor for HW, taught this class with me. The majority of the students were current undergraduates from SAIC, but some were also from other schools in Chicago and other parts of the U.S. The workshop that covered various ways to print on clay, understand glaze calculation and ceramic chemistry and raku firing.
The other workshop I gave was July 11 & 12th was at the Clay House Studio (www.clayhousestudios.com) in Park City, UT. That workshop focused specifically on screenprinting on clay. I also gave a public lecture on my work and on the field of contemporary ceramics.
The photos below include some of the sprig molding I was teaching, the raku kiln that was used to fire work and a small sampling of student work. These are all from Oxbow.
