      Historical Forms, Contemporary Myths Workshop With Anja Bartels and Gabriel Kline

      Historical Forms, Contemporary Myths 5-Day Workshop With Anja Bartels and Gabriel Kline. May 28-June 1, Monday-Friday 9:30 am-4:30 pm. As humans, we all develop our own personal mythologies. These help us relate to each other and to the world around us. We create our own history filled with characters that enchant or revile us, inspire us to seek higher purpose, or serve as reflections of our own experience. We find meaning in their anecdotal wanderings, adventures, and tragedies. Their stories become parables in our own lives, offering us laws to abide by, bend, or even break. In this way, we are able to uncover more of our own truth. As ceramists, we are also inspired by and connected to the potters who came before us. In this workshop, we will examine the construction methods of several masterpieces of classical pottery from the Greek, Chinese, and Peruvian traditions. We will first analyze and discuss the way these pieces reflect the culture that created them. Then, we will focus on decorating them with images representing modern or contemporary myths, both personal and communal. Techniques taught in this workshop will include team throwing, assembling large pots in sections, stamping and stenciling, sgraffito and mishima, and digital projector image transfer. Level: Intermediate to Advanced. Tuition: $595 + $75 Lab Fee.
