Which Artist Would You Love To Work Beside In Their Studio For One Week? Who And Why? | July 17, 2013

Recommended Posts

Which artist would you love to work beside in their studio for one week? Who and why? Add a photo and/or a web link!  I actually have two people I would love to work with:  Beatrice Wood, for her expertise, her stories and to learn how to grow old gracefully.  My other choice would be David Shaner, for his skill, expertise, and to learn how to make work that touches others as much as his touches me.

I'm not good enough yet to benefit from such an instructor. It would be like a "duffer" receiving the best golf clubs available. It would not make much of difference yet. But ask me in 5 years.

oh. The title before it completely opened was " which artist would you love"?

Miguel Molet. He lives in Catalunya, one of my favorite parts of the world. I enjoy his exploration and classes 

where the group explore new ideas together. He has a great community he is working with.

Jeremy Randall. His beautiful work is so different. I was lucky enough to take a 3 day workshop with him in the spring, but would love to work for a week with him as he is so efficient in his methods and has a lot to offer.

actually, if you did nothing more than silently  walk around the studio of an experienced potter with your EYES and your BRAIN open, you would learn more than asking 500 questions here.  that is why anyone new should take advantage of any "open studio" visits in your area.

Michael Sherrill.  I love his work, but his tools are intriguing to me.  He makes what he needs and finds materials to make them from that make them better than any other manufacturers.  I guess I am a tool man and a do it yourselfer, as is Michael.  I am guessing he could really teach me how to use my extruder in mind blowing ways.

Thanks, T, but Shadow May is crazy good! I just bought one of his mugs that blew my mind and was going to buy a bowl but my wife found out I was trying to sell the car to pay for it and said it was either her or the bowl. Now, I'm racked with indecision.

My pottery teacher was trained by Marguerite Wildenhain at Pond Farm. He speaks so highly of her. Her inspiration and guidance has lasted him a lifetime. So I think I'd spend time with her first.

It's true! Early fall I went to 2 studios in 1 day. I could feel the soul being poured into one potters' works, and the other potter seemed to allow anything standing upright, just to pump out as much as possible.  I learned that day what type of potter I wanted to become.

Ric Lamore is a local potter and has done demonstrations at my school twice now. Luckily my ceramics classes will be doing a pit firing with him and i will be helping him with his spring wood firing. i bet by the time i'm done pestering him with questions he wont even let me near his studio.

my other chose would be Mark Skudlarek who is also a local potter and i was able to visit him once and get a tour.

I have to add my 2 cents worth.  I have been an admirer of Sandra Blain's work for some time now... and hope to get into one of her workshops soon. Sandra's use of stamped impressions, stains, and airbrushed accents is simply amazing to me. Here are images of her work.

Gabriel Koch's work is really sumptuous..best word I can think of. Thanks for posting.

 

 

I love it when someone 's work speaks to you.Miguel Molet's work also speaks to me. He is an experimenter in alternative firings and his terra sig work is awesome.

Here is Miguel's webpage
