DARK GARDEN, an installation of my ceramic sculpture

January 30, 2016 - January 8, 2017

Erie Art Museum, 411 State Street, Erie, PA

My concern for the natural environment influences my sculpture, where I explore various aspects of the problem "man versus nature" as well as fragility, vulnerability, and life versus decay.  I use plant forms, seed pods, leaves, and flowers as a source for imagery.  Many of the sculptures have impressions of trash in the clay.  I consider littering to be the "canary in the coal mine," portraying attitudes toward pollution.  Often actual rusted rebar metal becomes a part of my sculptural plants’ structure.  The rebar also facilitates building clay forms that can rise higher into space in a way unusual for traditional heavy clay sculpture.  I like to test the borders of response from the viewer and what they want to see: desirable versus undesirable in a way that parallels our acceptance or denial of environmental issues.

Big Cylinders

Saturday, February 13, 2016, 1:00 - 4:00 pm (making)

Saturday, February 20, 2016, 1:00 - 4:00 pm (glazing)

 

This workshop will cover how to hand-build large cylinders.  A demonstration will illustrate different ways a simple cylinder can be altered to become a totally different form (for example…a pitcher, a vase, a lantern, etc.). Participants can then make cylinders to “play” with, exploring the boundaries and concepts of control versus lack of control.  One week later, after the work has been bisque fired, a second session will be held for glazing.  The glazed work will be fired and can be picked up at the studio at a later date. 

 

Open to all levels of experience. Techniques will be tailored to each individual’s interest and ability.  Clay, use of tools, glazes and firing are included.  One or both sessions can be taken.  Join us and have fun!

My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations.  I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive. 

I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio.  Each has a different theme or project.  I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools.  These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop.
