Porcelain Sculptures Inspired by Nature
with Zemer Peled

August 9-22, 2020

In this two-week workshop with Zemer Peled, students will learn a variety of techniques to create sculptures using porcelain. Over the course of the workshop, students will use various techniques and tools to create surface textures reminiscent of the natural world, such as extruders, decals and nerikomi (a Japanese technique to create colorful patterns in the porcelain).  In the first week of the workshop, instruction will focus on creating shapes using porcelain and designing repetitive patterns to mirror the structure and movement of natural forms within the finished sculpture. In the second week, students will bring life to their own three-dimensional sculptures using porcelain elements and handbuilding techniques such as coils and slabs. 

Zemer is known for her large-scale porcelain shard sculptures, which are represented in galleries and museums all over the world. She has found healing through her work in the process of breaking the porcelain and using the pieces to create new structures inspired by natural forms. This will be her first time teaching this intensive workshop exploring a wide range of the techniques she uses in her own work. She will demonstrate her own creative process for constructing sculptures over the course of the workshop.

Open to all levels of experience.
