Joe Campbell â€“ The Potterâ€™s Brush Workshop WS02 â€“ Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, April 25 & 26, 2015 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member The tools we use in our studio can and should be an integral part of what we say with our work, and their voice should be heard. Good brushes, chosen for their particular ability, and used with skill, are critical to the success of our pieces. In this 2-day, hands on workshop, we will visit the history of the potterâ€™s brush, explore techniques for the application of ceramic materials, and learn to build good ceramic brushes. Slides, videos, handouts, and instructor demonstrations will weave together the process for making brushes, and their skillful use with slips, engobes, underglazes, glazes, and wax resist. During the class students will make 3 brushes of their choosing, and have the time and opportunity to enhance their decorating skills using these new tools and new knowledge. All necessary materials for brush construction will be provided. Joe Campbell has been making pots for over 45 years, and making his own fine brushes for over 25. He is Professor Emeritus from Frederick Community College, having retired after 33 years of college level instruction in Ceramics and Art. Joe received his MFA in Ceramics from Ohio University in 1976, and his BS in Ceramics from Frostburg State College in 1973. His ceramic work has always been involved with the making of vessels, with a particular focus on the surface. â€œYes from a functional standpoint, I want my pieces to work well, but shame on me if that is all they do. Great pots should strive to be every bit as engaging as a good painting or sculpture, and have as an added bonus, their physical function in our kitchens and our homes. This has always been my challenge in the studio. â€ His brushes are a natural outgrowth of this same challenge, seeking to be great decorating tools, and beautiful, intimate little pieces of sculpture in their own right. Joe has conducted numerous workshops in brush making and decorating throughout the nation, and done artist in residence stays from Watershed in Maine, to Tierra Hermosa Studios in New Mexico.
