Description

Join Jennifer Mally for a two-day workshop exploring techniques to create two different ceramic animal sculptures. The first day we will explore how to make a realistic animal sculpture by building an armature and accurately forming an animal from its bone and muscle structure. The second day we play with abstraction by cutting out representational animal shapes from plywood. We will slump-form a left and a right side of an animal and put the sides together to create a free-standing 3-D animal that can be altered and embellished. Included in the class are 25 lbs. of high-fire stoneware clay for each student along with all tools and materials. Jennifer will offer demos and bring handouts and reference books.
