Ceramic Sculpture: Metaphor Led Making
Instructor: Mark Corwine
September 4 - November 16
Students of all levels are welcome to join this class. Beginner students will learn to construct sculptural forms, and functional if they wish, with traditional handbuilding techniques. Experienced students will continue to develop their own skills and processes with assistance from the instructor.
In Mark’s own work, he utilizes metaphor as inspiration for conceptual meaning. With this in mind, he is able to speak a message to the viewer, and portray a sense of drama. Slips and glazes contrast with the red clay he uses thus increasing the variety in the color palette and help to emphasize different elements of the sculpture.
