Making / Meaning: Building Thoughts into Form - Workshop at Saratoga Clay Arts Center

Rooted in tradition and practicality, utilitarian ceramics can actually serve as radical, transformative art.  Dining is a multisensory experience that engages us beyond the level of physical nourishment to ignite our sense of selfhood, relationship, ancestry, and culture.  Experience with handmade pottery stretches those sense organs and alters the scripts by which we interact around food.

A Refined Palette: Nourishing a Unique Approach to Color in the Ceramic Process

Spend two weeks immersed in the ceramics studio and engage with the raw materials of clay and glazes to craft a more confident approach to color in your art work and in your classroom. In this studio intensive workshop, participants will learn to develop intentional color and surface through the manipulation of ceramic materials as well as commercial clays and glazes. Our two guest artists, Birdie Boone and Lindsay Rogers, will each share insights on creating expressive utilitarian work with an intentional color palette. This workshop is offered through Kutztown University and is available as a workshop only, or as ACT 48 credits for Pennsylvania educators.

Workshop at The Clay Studio of Philadelphia

During this workshop, gwendolyn yoppolo will reflect upon life as a thoughtful maker of contemporary objects that engage with sensual experience and personal relationships within food culture.  In the design and production of forms, yoppolo uses a mix of throwing, pinching, coil building, solid prototype building and molding.  As she discusses the alignment of concept, material, process, and form in her work, she will share insights on how to choose the best technique for the job.

holding forth

Solo Exhibition in the Korman Gallery of The Clay Studio of Philadelphia

Making is a way for me to feel out the space carved by my gestures, and to outline that space with matter so I can offer it out to other bodies.  The material container created is only of necessity; it holds forth the space more than it insists on its own presence, ideally disappearing into the felt experience of the work.
