Workshop in Bali, Indonesia- April 1-14, 2018

Focus on Form, Mindful of Surface

Lorna Meaden

April 1-14, 2018

In this two-week workshop in Bali, participants will refine and expand their vocabulary of functional forms. We will make simple pots for daily use such as cups and bowls, in addition to more complex forms for pouring and serving. While focusing on form, we will be mindful of surfaces that respond well to soda firing. Explorations of surface will include texture, line and atmosphere. Our pots will be altered, stamped, and drawn on, before being offered to the atmospheric influence of the soda kiln. This workshop is open and suitable for all levels of throwing ability. Participants will have an opportunity to explore both stoneware and porcelain according to their preference and interests.
