Martha Grover - Industrial Pourers

Hands-On/Demo Workshop - All Skill Levels
Instructor: Martha Grover - Visiting Artist Workshop

Discover the idiosyncrasies of working with porcelain on and off the wheel as Martha Grover demonstrates how to make her undulating functional forms. She will discuss special throwing and altering techniques suited for this elegant and sensuous material and how to exploit its best qualities. Demonstrations will include working with various wheel-thrown forms and slabs in both the soft and leather-hard stages to create a variety of cups, bowls, vases, pitchers, lidded forms, and teapots. She will explore bottomless thrown forms, with the additions of slabs, handles and spouts.  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.

*Workshop participants should plan to participate in group discussions and bring a bag lunch, any photographs for reference during discussion and a sketchbook. (Meets in W-8)
