Exploring Functional Hand Building
Discovering the NEW in the OLD,
July 8 -19 / / Two Week Workshop
Sunshine’s demonstration will motivate you to experiment with new and old forms and methods of construction. Her workshop is geared toward creative expansion, a process-over-product mentality. Beginners to advanced students are welcome. The demo will include coil and pinch methods from hard and soft slab construction to generate pottery components. She will speak to the building of surface through the making process and discuss the glaze and surface treatment of her work.
Sunshine’s work is based in the tradition of historic ceramics, yet she carries contemporary themes throughout her work. She will discuss her inspiration, how abstract concepts make their way into her work, and how you can foster similar ideations into your own creative practice.

July 16 -19 // 4 Day Workshop
China paint is a versatile material that can be used to produce a wide range of imagery, pattern, or surface effects. Anything that can be done with paint or ink can be replicated on the surface of a glazed form using this medium. Students in this workshop will explore the use of china paint to add color and design to ceramic work. The use of brushes, how to mix and apply the paints, an overview of pen-work and how to fire the work will all be covered. Participants will paint on their own previously glazed and fired work and/or on commercial china or tiles. We will fire work daily and students will leave with a number finished pieces.
