  1. Done with porcelain, finalizing stoneware, in the middle of frit ware: so now I need to study earthenware and terra cotta. Looking for Recipes, links to recipes: do not include your private recipes. Need to start tearing apart the basic formula limits and create a database. Thank you for the help. Nerd
  2. Hi! I'm doing my first big craft show in a few weeks and I'm trying to figure out some aspects of my display. I've designed a pipe and drape system from old copper pipes and was thinking i could use big(ish) terra cotta vase shapes filled with concrete to house the bottoms of my legs and act as weights. Has anyone had experience filling a ceramic form with concrete? Does it crack or cause any problems? I'd also love some feedback on trade show set-up tips. Thanks, Dana
  3. Jenny Mendes Workshop Awakening the Possibilities: Terra Cotta Jungle WS05 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, June 11 & 12 2016 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member This hands-on, two day workshop is for anyone who wants to awaken the possibilities in their ceramic work through the imaginative use of color decoration. Jenny will demonstrate various vibrant ways to approach the surface as a painter, by means of a palette of terra sigillatas, underglaze, washes and oxides. Simple hand-built forms and tiles will serve as your canvas. She will share her “low tech method†of making terra sigillata. The emphasis will be on helping participants relax so they can play with color, texture and imagery on the surface of their work. A willingness to have fun and embrace the deliberate awkwardness of finding oneself in unknown territory is the only prerequisite! All levels welcome. Jenny Mendes earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1982, and has been a full time studio artist since 1994. Jenny is an internationally recognized ceramic artist working primarily with clay to create hand-built and decorated ceramics. She exhibits her ceramic artwork nationally at galleries and juried shows. Since completing a three-year residency at the Penland School of Crafts in 2007, she has completed additional short-term residencies in France, Slovenia, Macedonia, and the US. She currently resides in Ohio, teaches an occasional workshop, and gardens for pleasure. Artist Statement Using clay as my primary material, I have found an entry way into my subconscious. I work intuitively with a palate comprised of many things. First I create a structure which I overlay with painted patterns of emotional experience, sensory based memories, cellular formations, and other discoveries. Working within a human/animal narrative, I engage in a dialogue that witnesses and reflects an invitation into my world.
