Unique handbuilt vases
Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th July // 18:00 – 21.30
From clay lump to vessel
In this course we will create a ceramic object just with our hands. Using a combination of hand building techniques – pinching and coiling, we will learn how to build any kind of vessel, for example a vase. This method allows the construction of a variety of shapes and scales while controlling the shape structure. We will work on high-rise construction with emphasis on surface area and finishing touches. The workshop is designed for all levels – from beginners, and to those who want to improve their technique.
On the first day we will start with learning the technique and then begin building the desired object. On the second day the slightly dried objects will get their finishing touches, using engobe to create the imagined finished work.
Bar Bergman, born and raised in Tel Aviv, currently living in Vienna, is a sculpture and ceramic artist, who specializes in hand building techniques. Her work corresponds with shapes and colors motifs that can be found in nature, with a strong emphasis on clean smooth textures.
Course will be held in English.
