MAKING IN MULTIPLES WITH BRIAN KLUGE
Participants will form small-scale sculptural or functional forms as prototypes for making multiples. Techniques will include: building with stiff slabs; solid building; mold-making; and surfacing objects with metallic oxides, commercial colorants and underglazes. Kluge will also discuss how his own work relates to both the Mingei and Wabi-Sabi traditions. Students should be prepared to work with clay in a drier state than they may be accustomed to. By the end of the workshop, participants will have several small objects and up to three molds. Beginners welcome.
