PRESENTERS (back to top)

 

SANDRA BLAIN

Handbuilding: Explore Form and Surface to Find Your Own Voice
Sandy’s presentation will focus on slab constructed composite stoneware vessels emphasizing form construction and surface design techniques as not being ends in themselves but as the basis to pursue personal ideas. Design principles will be considered while relating form and surface, smooth and textured, to the use of slips, oxides and glazes creating actual and visual depth through layering – for mid-range electric firings. Using a flat slab, the clay will be marked by impressing found objects, stamping, carving, and drawing. The piece will then be constructed using a structural core. Altering the form and the addition of appendages (edges/tops, handles, feet/bases) will follow at appropriate stages.

 

Ideas often spring from sketches, graphics, our environment, architecture, plant life, man-made forms and the important process of making itself. And of prime consideration will be the use of the piece for daily or special functions.

 

Additional Information

Sandy is Professor Emeritus – ceramics, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Director Emeritus, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Gatlinburg, TN. Her background includes a B.S. in Art Education from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL and an M.F.A. in ceramics from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. After moving to Arizona in 2004, Sandy set up a studio and continues to be involved as a practicing artist. In addition, she serves as an adjunct faculty member at the Mesa Art Center and is also active with the Arizona State University Ceramic Research Center regularly hosting one of the CRC Studio Tours. Sandy also serves as a juror for national and regional exhibitions, a workshop leader and a consultant to various arts organizations. Her clay pieces have been seen in juried and invitational exhibitions throughout the country with reviews and photographs in media publications.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

DEBRA FRITTS

The Painterly Approach to the Surface
This presentation will expose the viewer to different ways to approach surface. Considering color, layering, mark-making, and intuitive discovery, interesting surfaces can be achieved on clay at all stages. The inspiration comes from the artist – the full awareness of daily living. Debra will demonstrate the use of dry clays on a wet surface and the painting with engobes and underglazes to achieve the first layer. Also, she will stress the importance of making marks and drawing into the surface.  A bisque piece with this type of treatment will be used to explain the next step to surface. Oxide stains and more layers of underglazes will be applied to prepare the piece for the second firing.Debra will also show images of her work which will allow the viewer to understand how her daily surroundings have informed the work in form and color. 

 

Additional Information

Debra Fritts is a studio artist working in Abiquiu, New Mexico. She received her undergraduate degree in Art Education from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and continued graduate studies in ceramic sculpture, painting and printmaking. Debra conducts master classes and workshops nationally.

BRYAN HOPKINS
Light and Shadow: Textured and Translucent Porcelain Techniques
In this workshop, we will work on pushing porcelain pots to the edge of the rule that form must follow function–this grey area is where provocative utilitarian work exists. Bryan’s work is vessel-based, made with porcelain. It utilizes a monochrome palette, and is fired to cone 11 in a gas kiln.He works in two series: The first series is utilitarian, called Function. The other is a series of sculptural vessels that he calls Dysfunction. In both series Bryan pushes the clay to its’ limits, and exploit the clays’ most amazing physical trait–translucence. In this demonstration he will be making pieces from each series.

 

Bryan will demonstrate his methods for making translucent porcelain pieces cups, bowls, etc. All of his work begins on the potter’s wheel, is cut apart, altered, and reconstructed. The use of carving tools and bisque molds and drills to affect surface, and increase translucence, will be shown.He will demonstrate how to successfully add hand-built elements to wheel thrown elements to create interesting asymmetric forms, influenced by architecture, historic ceramics, and his own urban environment.

 

In addition to the demonstrations, Bryan will also discuss the “why” of making. Like why he makes everything himself, by hand.

 

Additional Information

Bryan Hopkins was born in Philadelphia, PA. He began West Chester University of PA as a mathematics major, and found the ceramics studio in his junior year. Bryan went on to earn an MFA in Ceramics from the State University of New York at New Paltz. He has been studio potter working in porcelain since 1990 and has lived in Buffalo, NY, since 1995. Bryan’s personal research in the field of ceramics centers on the vessel- both utilitarian and sculptural.

 

Bryan teaches part time at Niagara County Community College. He has curated ceramics exhibitions both nationally and locally.  Bryan’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows nationally, including the  NCECA Clay National Biennial (2005 & 2009), and his work has been published in  Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics: Art and Perception, Studio Potter , 500 Vases, and Best of 500 Ceramics.  Bryan is also a New York Foundation on the Arts Fellow in Craft.

MEREDITH HOST
Depth of Pattern: Layering with Screen-Printing, Stencils, and Decals
Meredith’s work is thrown or slip cast cone 6 porcelain and fired oxidation in electric kilns. She will focus on her surface decorating process for the demonstration. Most of all Meredith’s surface decoration happens before the bisque firing. She uses underglazes & slips for trailing, thermofax screen printing/EZ Screens, and paper stencils to create the many layers of color & depth on the surface of her pots. After the glaze firing, Meredith then fires a third time with homemade iron oxide decals or screen-printed china paint decals for one last added layer. This process of adding multiple layers allows the work to have a depth of pattern and an intricate, complex surface. 

 

Additional Information

Meredith Host was born and raised in Detroit Rock City.  She received her BFA in Ceramics from Kansas City Art Institute in 2001 and her MFA in Ceramics from The Ohio State University in 2008.   Meredith has spent time at numerous ceramic residencies including The School for American Crafts at RIT in Rochester, NY, Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, ME, and Dresdner Porzellan Manufactory in Dresden, Germany.  She was named one of the 2011 Emerging Artists for NCECA and Ceramics Monthly.  Currently, Meredith lives in Kansas City, MO and is a full time studio potter.

MARK KNOTT
Color + Pattern + Form = Smiles
Using flashing slips, slips and glazes; Mark will demonstrate how he develops innovative forms and complex patterns to create extremely happy pots! By choosing bright, brilliant glazes and softening the surfaces with soda Mark is able to create fantastic layers enhancing the primarily functional work! Mark will begin by demonstrating how he constructs several forms, watering cans, oval flower boats and oval vases. Mark will dedicate the remainder of the time showing how he applies glazes using cut sponges, paper cut templates and wax resist. Mark will share his thoughts and insight into making work for everyday living! Tools, techniques and glaze recipes will be shared freely! This is sure to be a fun informative presentation. While Mark fires primarily in a soda kiln to cone 6 the techniques demonstrated are easily translated to any firing method!
 

Additional Information
Artist Statement: Reflection, history, confluence, life experience, water, continual movement repetitive patterns. These are dominant themes in my work. I work with porcelain & stoneware using the wheel with then alter to loosen. Softening the edges, corners, and curves accentuating the forms. My work is soda fired in a directional cross draft kiln . The burners enter from one side. A sodium solution is sprayed into the kiln. This mixture vaporizes following the path of the flames, caressing one side of the pots. The side facing the burners accumulates more soda. The hypnotic patterns are softened and/or blurred. While the backside remains dry, decoration in tact and crisp. This directional firing creates fantastic surfaces with dramatic variations from side to side. It’s my hope as a potter that my work will first create some sort of happiness and/or joyfulness to the viewer, experiencing one small moment of happiness when used or viewed daily. I think the pots do that! That’s personal happiness!
