Investigate the Wabi-Sabi Aesthetic in a laid-back workshop for any level ceramicist. Wabi-sabi is a Japanese aesthetic centered on transience and imperfection, and valuing asymmetry, simplicity, economy and intimacy. You’ll receive instruction and all materials to create three beautiful wabi-sabi vessels in black Cassius Basaltic clay with opalescent glaze flow within the vessel. The once-firing process and all materials are included.
Ron Wilson is one of the owners of Roadrunner Ceramics and has ten years of ceramics experience. He has worked on the wheel and in sculpture and handbuilding, and has experience in electric, raku, and woodfire kiln technique. Ron will guide you in the philosophy and practice of traditional wabi-sabi ceramic creativity in a relaxing, low pressure event that will get your hands in the clay, your head in a positive, connected space, and you out of your house during these stressful times. Creativity as an antidote to Covid.
Snacks and drinks are included. This is a handbuilding workshop, and will be held outdoors and limited to six participants to accommodate social distancing. Cloth masks are encouraged. All materials and once-firing service are included. Attendees will create several beautiful pieces and can pick up their fired work the week following the workshop. This should be a relaxing, pleasant and informative workshop.
