Exploring Functional Hand Building
Discovering the NEW in the OLD with Sunshine Cobb
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.
