Experience ceramics on the Emerald Isle!
Potters Council is excited to be going to Ireland for the first time. Our inaugural trip to Ireland will prove that travel here will provide a source of inspiration for visual artists. The itinerary for this trip is designed to provide visual stimulation as a valuable teaching and learning tool for those interested in ceramics. This visual inspiration will be drawn upon when we reach the contemporary ceramic studios, where you’ll enjoy four and half days in the studio learning from Darren Cassidy, Robert Lee, Sara Roberts, Julian Smith, and Adrian Wistreich.
Join us in San Diego, California, with artists Tammy Marinuzzi, Kip O’Krongly, Jack Troy, and Theo Uliano in this two day ceramic event. Hosted by Jackpots Pottery, each artist will explain and demonstrate their own approach to clay, and how each listens to their own artistic voice to create new forms. DEADLINE TO SAVE $75 ON REGISTRATION IS DECEMBER 21, 2014
NEW VIDEO RELEASE!!
In this new video, Jason Bige Burnett shares his techniques for creating colorful, handbuilt pots with a graphic punch! Combining his background in printmaking and graphic design with his love of clay, Jason begins with an in-depth introduction to screen printing – from how to mix emulsion, to burning a screen in an easy-to-assemble exposure unit at home. Next, he details how to make ordinary ceramic underglazes and engobes suitable for screen printing and then shares his process for screening them onto newsprint for transferring later to clay work. He then demonstrates how he makes a number of handbuilt forms and tops it all off with an explanation of additional decorative techniques he uses in the glazing and post firing process.
