*please call 322-3362 in advance to register for this workshop
Description: In this weekend workshop, artist Carol Zee will guide you through the unique construction process she has developed over years of exploration. Using variations on handbuilding techniques, students will design and build a vase that is a study in the limitless variations of composition defined by this construction process and technique. Each vase will be unique, and dramatically different from any other vase in the world!
Your vase will be fired and glazed by Donkey Mill and will be ready to be picked up within a month after the workshop.
Instructor bio: Carol Zee enjoys exploring 3-dimensional shape and composition. She is drawn to strong forms, defined surfaces, the visual interaction of curves planes and angles and the absence of straight lines or symmetry. She also likes to explore the interplay and harmony of major forms and supporting elements. Carol has been working in clay for nine years, focused on hand-built sculptural, yet functional art. She is primarily self-taught through experimentation and trial and error, especially learning from experience how the fire of the kiln will either cement or destroy her intentions.
Carol took up pottery after retiring from 35 years working in the aerospace industry of Southern California. She now splits her time between Hawaii and California and enjoys artists and art communities everywhere.
