Hands on workshop.
Sunshine’s demonstration will motivate you to experiment with new and old forms and methods of construction. Her workshop is geared toward creative expansion, and encourages students who attempt to use these new and old hand building techniques to embrace a process-over-product mentality. She will focus on ways this approach resonates with beginning students just discovering what the boundaries within ceramics, all the way up to advanced professionals who have worked within boundaries for years. Not all boundaries are bad, but knowing how to open them illuminates endless possibilities.
Her demonstration will include coil and pinch methods to hard and soft slab construction to generate the various components she uses to construct her pots. She will speak to the building surface through the making process and discuss the glaze and surface treatment of her work.
