Through history and across cultures clay has been used to build as well as decorate walls. In this workshop participants have the opportunity to make a singular or multiple component clay wall piece. Studio time will be devoted to working with wet clay. Examples of historical and contemporary ceramic wall works will be shown and discussed followed by demonstrations of construction approaches. These will include clay relief, using press molds, slab and wad building. We will discuss possible ideas, design considerations, and installation methods. Students may come with a specific idea of what they would like to make or simply with the intention of spending 3 days of exploration and stretching their imagination.
