  5. John Donovan - Jul 12-16, 2019 - FIGURATIVE MYTH(OLOGY) - $606.50 $606.50 Workshop Description: Figurative Myth(ology) will be an exploration of hand-building techniques in clay with the intent of creating abstracted or fragmented figurative forms imbued with personal narrative content.

  10. Handbuilding Laboratory There are two distinct stages to acquiring technique: The first is to learn it, the second is to forget it. We will review of the basics of hand built ceramics then blur the lines. Emphasis will be placed on gaining a deeper understanding of the clay itself, establishing a paradigm of creative problem solving and developing a personal set of integrated methods that accomplishes our artistic goals. ALL LEVELS Session runs August 1 – 5, 2018 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily, open studio hours on select days. $470 tuition + $35 registration fee Artist Bio: ERIC KNOCHE creates work that is an exploration of the underlying cadences and postulates of his own life and the layers of culture that surround him. The objects he creates are distillations of fundamental movements of energy into static three dimensional forms. When he makes work, he often feels as though he is excavating his own subconscious. He has been strongly influenced by languages he doesn’t understand and tools he doesn’t know how to use, male and female figures, machine parts, shelters, math equations, micro-facial movements, the argentine tango, alphabets, the spine and other bones, the distortional nature of memory, the limits of ocular perception, plants, running water, and songbirds. www.ericknoche.com $505
