Potters Linda Christianson and George McCauley have a combined "100 years of experience, travels, workshop histories, exhibitions, stories, studio work and teaching experience.” This two-day Master Class addresses form, surface and a variety of firing methods. Both feel strongly about form as an essential element in their work. The artists will discuss their own specific surface treatments and experience in firing including atmospheric firing, soda, wood and low temperature wood firing.
On the first day, the instructors will use wheel throwing and handbuilding techniques to make parts to be put together later. On the second day, they will explain their processes, answer questions, embellish, give out technical information and tell stories. In addition to technical and process aspects, they will convey aesthetic and educational components of the ceramic vocabulary.
This event is open to the public, but registration is required.
Cost: Adult Community $200; Adult Community enrolled in a course at the Ceramics Program $150; Harvard Graduate Students $80.00. Free for Harvard College Undergraduate Students.
