Sue Tirrell Workshop: Folkloric Pottery with a Modern Sensibility WS04 â€“ 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 potterâ€™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 â€“ folklore, allegory, material meaning and personal narrative â€“ 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).
