Martha Grover is coming to the Guild! Saturday and Sunday May 14-15, 2016
Join us for a two day demonstration workshop with Martha Grover, well known clay artist from Maine, USA, and discover the idiosyncrasies of working with porcelain on and off the wheel as Martha Grover demonstrates how to make her signature undulating functional forms.
In this two-day workshop, Martha will share her special throwing and altering techniques that exploit this elegant and sensuous material’s best qualities. Working with a variety of bottomless wheel- thrown forms and slabs in both the soft and leather hard stages, Martha will demonstrate various altering techniques and addition of slabs, handles, and spouts to create an assortment of functional forms. Forms will include cups, bowls, vases, pitchers, lidded forms and baskets. Crack repair and mending techniques will be addressed, as well as the use of a spray gun for glaze application.
Martha will also talk about her sources of inspiration, philosophy of making and studio practices. Visit her website: http://marthagrover.squarespace.com/
