Handcrafted functional ceramics

Alfred University Summer Series


Registration is Open
All workshops will be filled on a first come basis until the participant maximum is met. Once the class limit is reached, a waiting list will be kept.

Sunshine will motivate you to experiment with new and old forms and methods of construction. This workshop is geared toward creative expansion, a process-over-product mentality that beginners to advanced students will be inspired by. Sunshine likes to encourage students who attempt to use these new and old hand building techniques a progress-over-perfection mantra. Demos will include coil and pinch methods to hard and soft slab construction to generate pottery components. She will speak to the building surface through the making process and discuss the glaze and surface treatment of her work.

Sunshine’s work foundation is very much based in the tradition of historic ceramics, but she is a completely modern potter with contemporary themes in her work. She will talk about inspiration and how abstract concepts make their way into her work and how to foster similar insertion into your own creative practice.
