Intimate • In-depth • Inspirational • Inexpensive
FLAT TO FUNCTIONAL: HANDBUILDING with LISA NAPLES
June 8, 2013
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Presented and hosted by Potters Council
Come one, come all! This course is for all levels of experience including “none.” During this demonstration workshop, Lisa will saturate your brain with hands-on slab building techniques. She’ll cover notions of texture, as well as and “dry” and “wet” slip application using colored slips. Of course, she’ll also talk a lot about form, because it all starts there!
Lisa hopes to stimulate the most creative bones in your body and really get you revved up to go back to your own studio inspired.
Please note: This is a demonstration workshop.
Attendees will learn…
When I was seventeen, I took a pottery class as a college freshman for “fun.” That was 1978. Even though I wouldn’t come to know it in a conscious way for another 4 years, that simple exposure was enough to begin a lifelong relationship with this material: clay. From that moment on, I built my life and decisions around what was ‘next’ for me in ceramics.
Much of the traveling I’ve experienced has been in one way or another because of my career whether it was for teaching workshops or doing residencies or shows.
Now my life not only has ceramics at the center but a partner and kids too. I married my husband, Andy Cleff in 1991. He and I share the two-story barn on our property in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, for our respective businesses. We share our lives with two amazing human beings, our daughters Isabel and Sophie.
I’ve always counted myself very fortunate to have found such a meaningful path that just about always seems to have arrows pointing me to the next direction…and to be so engaged and compelled by my chosen career. At this stage of the game, I have faith in the creative process to the point that even when I can’t see the direction ahead I know that if I can make space for play and practice, I’ll be fine. And I always am.
