In this workshop, Jack will demonstrate not only techniques he works with but the path for developing a genuine and fruitful way of relating to clay and to one's own work.
He will demonstrate the cup, embodying a concern for functionality, aesthetic values and meaningful volume and surface. He will present a powerpoint show of contemporary Japanese bowls. On larger scale forms he will demonstrate faceting, carving, heavy slip application , and how and why some forms are prepared for wood firing. Jack will apply a variety of techniques to larger forms, altering them and embracing asymmetry.
Expect lively and engaging conversation, grounded in the history of pot making, and the good company of a master potter.
Bring two pots to the workshop that you have lived with over time; one should be by you, one by somebody else.
