  4. Hello there, my partner and I are considering the challenging undertaking of a ceramics workshop at the next Burning Seed festival (Australia's Burning Man) in September, so quite a bit of research and development time. However, if this is an absolutely impossible task in your esteemed and learned opinions, it would be better to pull the plug early on. It will be held outdoors (under shelter), there will be no electricity available and the festival lasts 6 days. Budget isn't huge and conventional small gas kilns aren't easily available in Australia, so I've been considering the ceramic fibre flat pack gas kiln designs. At this point, I believe my biggest challenge is the timeframe - I feel like delivering a glazed piece on day 6 is likely unlikely, particularly considering the lack of drying time and the unpredictability of being exposed to the elements. Though if there is any way I could incorporate a candling feature into the flat pack design, perhaps this issue could be mitigated. Here are my thoughts on a timeframe: Day 1 & 2: Handbuilding workshop - earthenware clay, cups Day 3: Drying Day 4: Candling and bisque Day 5: Glazing and glaze firing Day 6: Finished! So my questions are: -Impossible? Yay or nay? -Is candling possible in the flat pack gas kilns? Perhaps with a smaller, less powerful torch attached? -Are there any better ways you think this could be achieved? -Do you have any other general advice? Thanks wonderful people, this forum is an absolute wealth of information and you're all great. If all else fails I'll just take some airdry clay and be done with it :-P

  13. Sue Tirrell Workshop: Folkloric Pottery with a Modern Sensibility WS04 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, November 7 & 8, 2015 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member In this 2-day hands-on workshop Sue will demonstrate the construction and decoration techniques she employs to create her colorful, animal-centric porcelain pottery. Using both the potter’s wheel and hand-building techniques Sue will demonstrate her unique approach to form and surface, drawing and carving, and the use of color to weave the pottery narrative. Additional discussion topics will cover Idea generation – folklore, allegory, material meaning and personal narrative – as they help to shape and inform the work. Participants will have the opportunity to employ these ideas through their own work during both days. Please bring a sketchbook, personal carving tools and any reference material you would like to incorporate in your work (photos, drawings, etc.) Bio Born and raised in Red Lodge, MT, Sue Tirrell received a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1997. She served as Education Director for the Custer County Art & Heritage Center in Miles City, MT for seven years where she implemented arts education outreach to rural schools and communities. She has been a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT; California State University, Chico; and the Custer County Art & Heritage Center in Miles City (also director of education from 1998 to 2005). Tirrell's work has been included in regional and national juried and invitational exhibitions and museums. Sue's work explores themes of the West and nature. She investigates cultural stereotypes of the west in a witty and whimsical way with her cowgirls and cowboys that have an underlying tongue and cheek humor to them playing with sentiment, nostalgia and kitsch. Her rich glazes have a seductive quality while the work refers to several ceramic traditions from Greek to Chinese to Folk art. Tirrell's work has continued to gain widespread attention and acclaim. In 2006, images of her work were published in the book "500 Animals in Clay" (Lark Books). WS04 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, November 7 & 8, 2015 Fee: $200 members; $225 non-members Contact Matthew Hyleck at matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org for more information.

  14. Kelly & Kyle Phelps: The Narrative Figure Workshop WS03 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, June 27 & 28, 2015 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member Kelly and Kyle Phelps will demonstrate a variety of techniques they use to create figurative relief work with an emphasis on storytelling. The twins will share their process from start to finish on how their work is created and discuss how the use of the figure can be the perfect vehicle to talk about topics like but not limited to social/political, environmental issues, race, religion, class, sexuality, gender, poverty, war, and other issues of our time. Sequential topics that range from initial Idea generation – music, personal interviews, site visits, material meaning, and other related topics that inspires and informs their work will be explained. Formal aspects of armature/relief board construction, composition, scale/proportion, figure sculpting, surface treatment, and final presentation will be revealed. In this hands on workshop, the twins will create high relief figurative - narratives that will be influenced by their blue-collar working class background. Bio Identical twin brothers Kelly and Kyle Phelps are Associate Professors at private Catholic universities in Ohio. Kelly Phelps is an Associate Professor/Chair at Xavier University, Cincinnati, where he over sees the sculpture department. Kyle is an Associate Professor at University Dayton, OH, where he is the head of the ceramics department. Much of the twins’ work is about the blue collar working-class, race relations and the everyday struggles of the common man and woman. Both Kelly and Kyle continue to work collaboratively to create their artwork at their studio in Centerville, Ohio. The Phelps twins have conducted workshops at the highly respected Penland School of Craft Arts as well as the Baltimore Clayworks. The twins share numerous grants, regional and national exhibitions, and commissions. More notable private collectors of the twins work are in the hands of film director Michael Moore, and actor Morgan Freeman as well as a major review in the world acclaimed Sculpture Magazine and American Craft Magazine. Before entering the world of academia, becoming professors, tenure, and most recently sabbatical, the twins experienced firsthand what the struggles of the working class were really about! The twins grew up in a blue-collar/factory environment in Indiana where they were inspired by family members and friends who worked in various manufacturing plants, steel mills, and foundries. These everyday people became working class heroes that has inspired over a decade of working class art. For a number of years the twins have produced work that incorporates both the hand-crafted (ceramic and resin cast forms) juxtaposed with found objects/site specific objects. Kyle and Kelly have combined gears, corrugated metal and scrap-machined parts along with modeled ceramic/resin cast figures to create a visual narrative composition about the blue-collar experience. It is important for the twins to continue to combine hand-crafted ceramic forms together with these found objects to give their work an authentic sense of place and time. The found objects are in sense historical artifacts. Much of Kyle and Kelly’s work not only allows the viewer to visualize their created compositions, but also allows the viewer to evoke their other senses as well. Some of the found objects that they have incorporated into the work are soot-covered or soaked in cutting machine oils that emit a distinctive odor commonly found in automotive factories.

  24. Bryan Hopkins: Porcelain Vessels from Function to Dysfunction WS03 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, August 16 & 17, 2014 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member In this hands-on workshop participants will push their creative limits, as well as the physical limits of porcelain. Porcelain will be used and exploited for its unique and amazing plastic and fired qualities. Bryan will demonstrate his methods for combining wheel-thrown elements to create unique utilitarian forms and vessels. Participants will investigate a range of surface textures and construction methods through the use of bisque molds, x-Acto knives, wood carving tools and water etching. These surface enhancements will be employed to create new dimensions on the forms while emphasizing the translucent beauty of porcelain. The workshop will offer a balance of instructor demonstration, image presentation, one-on-one attention and student work time to explore avenues. This course is open to both wheel-workers and hand-builders and requires a basic working knowledge of clay coupled with a willingness to explore new ideas before enrolling. Bryan Hopkins was born in Philadelphia, PA. He was a mathematics major at West Chester University when he took his first ceramics class. Bryan went on to earn an MFA in Ceramics from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Bryan has been a studio potter working in porcelain since 1990, and has lived in Buffalo, NY, since 1995. Bryan works as Adjunct Professor of Ceramics and 3-D Design for Niagara County Community College, and has also taught at Medaille College, SUNY at New Paltz, and SUNY at Fredonia. Bryan’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows nationally, including the NCECA Clay National Biennial (2005 & 2009), the Craft Guild of Dallas, TX, MudFire Clayworks in Decatur, GA and SOFA Chicago and his work has been published in Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics: Art and Perception, Studio Potter, 500 Vases, and Best of 500 Ceramics. Bryan is a founding participant in Objective Clay, a diverse on-line craft forum sharing ideas and new work from 14 utilitarian ceramic artists.
